Henley Hill Yarra Valley Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Henley Hill is a highly historical property in the Yarra Valley. It dates back to 1849, and the homestead was built by Dame Nelly Melba's father. The vineyards came along in 2003, and since then they have been turning out highly quaffable wines like this one. It's a light, gooseberry and grassy number that shows hints of citrus and Granny Smith apples, along with a touch of honey developement. The palate is crisp and crunchy, with lemon and grassy, herby favours, friendly acidity, and a bright finish.

Winemaker's Notes

Nose: Gooseberry and green apples, tropical fruits

Palate: Fresh citrus and goosberry fruits underpinned by a touch of green grass. A clean, crisp acidity finishes this wine.

Food Match: Chevre or goats cheese, grilled snapper and creamy dill sauce

Interesting mid-weight quaffer. Spicy/herbal bouquet and quite a complex flavour profile.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Very pale colour; hints of tropical fruit, with an interesting mineral edge; quite fine and linear, if just a little shy of the necessary concentration

James Halliday (2007 Vintage) says
A ripe, yet distinctively sauvignon bouquet; hints of tropical fruit, and a little cut grass; quite generous, yet fresh on the finish.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Hints of tropical fruits, but with a strong mineral core and quite fresh acidity; very long and very focused on the finish.
