Tyrrell's Lost Block Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Tyrrell's continue their expedition to other regions with this bright and crisp style of sav blanc out of the Adelaide Hills. Smells of passionfruit, lemons and hints of chopped herbs lift from the glass, whilst the palate is lighter-bodied, and only 11.5% alcohol, with crisp, zesty citrus flavours, brisk acidity, and a dry, crunchy, lip-smacking finish. A good drink at a decent price.

Winemaker's Notes

The grapes were sourced from Orange, a cool climate region renowned for growing sauvignon blanc. After harvesting, the grapes were crushed and pressed before being transported our Hunter Valley winery, where it was fermented and matured. The wine was matured in stainless steel and bottled early to maintain its fresh, zesty flavours.


Nose: Lost Block Sauvignon Blanc exhibits a wonderfully fragrant nose of snow peas, guava and passionfruit.

Palate: The palate is well balanced between its vibrant citrus profile and a hint of grassy notes, with a soft, refreshing acid profile.

Food: Ideal served with seafood, chicken and pork. The typically crisp, acidic edge of the sauvignon blanc and medium weight also lends itself to spicy Asian dishes and salads.

Cellaring: Drink now.

Alcohol: 11.7%

Nick Stock (2012 Vintage) says
Sourced from the Adelaide Hills, this has a bright array of tropical and floral fruit aromas, some hints of grassy citrus too, really fresh. The palate s crisp and juicy: decent depth here, tropical fruits and crunchy resolve.

Everyone is taking to the Hills in '12, the Adelaide Hills that is; the wine has plenty of varietal expression in an easy-going tropical spectrum that will have broad appeal.

Sweaty, aromatic nose and super-rich, punchy fruit palate. Very pungent characters.
