Cracka Review

Now drawn from the Adelaide Hills (home of many good Australian Sauvs) and made in a 'look at me, I'm fresh and crisp and grassy but juicy enough that you'll like me' affable style. It's a Sauv Blanc for BBQ's and drinking at house parties whilst dancing to bad 80s music. That sort of thing. Fun first, complexity second but still plenty to like.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Bright pale straw with green gauge hues.

Nose: Fresh passionfruit, snow pea and gooseberry characters are all abound on this varietal nose with some beautiful lime citrus punching their way through.

Palate: Snow pea and tropical fruit flavours fill the mouth with succulent honeydew melon and grassy notes extending through the finish of the wine a wonderful minerality on the palate livens the wine, with lovely texture enriching the middle and finish to this complex and intense wine.

Cellaring: Drinking wonderfully now or cellar up to 2 years.

Alcohol: 13.5%

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2012 Vintage) says
The Adelaide Hills origin does appear on the front label, but I continue to be troubled by the Mount Pleasant brand; it is packed with gooseberry, paw paw and tropical fruits, with a low-level touch of sweetness.

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale straw-green; a wineright in the mainstream of Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc style, fusing tropical, citrus and herb aromas and flavours into a synergistic whole, with no single part dominating; has very good balance and length.

Perfectly balanced varietal with herbaceous nose and intense, persistent, green gooseberry flavours. Drinking well now and has cellaring potential. 3-5
