A winery based in McLaren Vale, this is a good value Sauvignon Blanc made with Adelaide Hills fruit.
In a line up of ten wines tasted blind, this wine was in my top four due to its point of difference, both aromatically and palate texture.
Some typical Sauvignon Blanc traits on the nose present: capsicum, pea, grassy and passion fruit. I even picked up a salt and vinegar chip aroma in there too.
The flavours on display are clean with good depth and weight. There is a little fruit sweetness in there too with the tropical flavours which dominate.
Widely available. Drink on its own quench your thirst on a hot day or have with a bucket of prawns.
