The Adelaide Hills is home to some of Australia's most classical Sauvignon Blanc styles with an intensity that rivals anything from NZ.

This Picnic Sauv is more than just a good drink at a picnic, it's a proper regional style that just happens to be accessible.

Driven by fresh passionfruit flavour, with a finish so fresh you'll feel better after drinking it, this is true 'Hills' Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

92 Points - Sam Kim - Wine OrbitIt’s bright and varietally expressive, showing apricot, kaffir lime, Gala apple and floral notes on the nose. The palate is equally charming and appealing with fine texture and juicy fruit flavours, offering excellent drinking. At its best: now to 2022. AU$25.00.

How's it taste?

Floral and pretty on the nose, displaying hints of tropical passionfruit, gooseberry and pineapple. The palate delivers white grapefruit, citrus and summer herbs, lively acidity provide length and freshness to the finish.

How was it made?

From low yield and cane pruned vines. Picked at night to ensure cold fruit is delivered to the winery. 8 hours skin contact to improve flavour and increase texture. Cold fermented, with 2 weeks lees stiring to give slight texture.

Who made it?

In 1890, Amos William Howard discovered subterranean clover thriving naturally in a picturesque valley in the Adelaide Hills. Howard Vineyard’s stone barn Cellar Door and premium red vineyard are located in Nairne, on the site of this original farm. Subterranean clover continues to grow at this site, restoring Nitrogen and ensuring the health and quality of the soil in this spectacular vineyard. 30km away, their high altitude (470m), cool climate white vineyard at Schoenthal (“Beautiful Valley” in German) is one of the Adelaide Hill’s finest sites for growing fresh, crisp Sparkling and white wines. It is these two unique vineyard sites that enable them to grow exceptional white and red grapes without compromise, and the Estate grown Picnic, Clover and Amos wines are renowned for their delicate notes and distinctive fruit purity. The winery is headed up by Tom Northcott. Tom oversees all vineyard and winemaking operations and his philosophy is simple; to make textural, cool climate wines that are light and elegant with a finesse that reflects the terroir of our vineyards.
