Mawson's Bridge Block 7A Wrattonbully Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This wine, made by Yalumba was named after the explorer Sir Douglas Mawson who the company sponsored to go to the Antarctic on expeditions between 1911-1914. This Sauvignon Blanc sourced from Wrattonbully probably would have been a welcome addition on those Mawson expeditions. As cool as the Antarctic this wine displays grassy and guava aromas before a zesty palate imbued with citrus and nettle and nicely rounded mouthfeel and a crisp finish. Serve chilled with fish and chips and a homemade tartare sauce.

Winemaker's Notes

A very pale straw with fresh green tinges, the aroma is very fresh with lychee and cut grass, fragrant spice and nettle leaf. The palate of this wine is intense with layers of flavours: lemon and lime citrus with a touch of fresh herbs. The texture is flinty and long and finishes with lingering flavours and a zesty acidity.

Try with chilli corn cakes. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians.

Expert Reviews

Nick Stock (2011 Vintage) says
Sourced from Wrattonbully, this has a clever little hint of flinty, pithy citrus on the nose and makes a fresh impression; really lovely wine. The palate s built on bright apple and lime citrus flavour, tangy and vibrant. Acidity is a feature and has held it right in the zone.

This is a Yalumba wine sourced from Wrattonbully and showing the benefits of its cool climate. There are vibrant, ripe tropical flavours, some peach and pear drop notes, all clean, fresh and tangy, finishing zesty

This is sourced from Wrattonbully and is very impressive at the price. It's delightfully fragrant, has cool tropical flavours, is vibrant and tangy in the mid-palate and finishes clean and dry.

Smells of gooseberries and tropical fruits. Lean and austere palate with a long, drying finish.

Highly aromatic, with just a hint of sweatiness; positive varietal flavour and character throughout

Senior white winemaker Louisa Rose and her team have blitzed the field in this difficult chapter with four of their wines coming up trumps. I love the intensity of the green pea and tropical characters of this wine, its softness and gulpability as well as the persistence of the flavours.

Tropical gooseberry and passionfruit aromas; very smooth and appealing; won't frighten the horses.
