Tasting Notes

Sourced from the Adelaide Hills, a cool-climate premium region. A fragrant bouquet showcasing citrus zest, green melon, and flintiness, this flavoursome wine has exceptional fruit intensity and is well-balanced with purity, elegance, and crisp minerality.

Winemakers Note

This single vineyard fruit parcel is from the 3 hectares of Sauvignon Blanc plantings in the Battunga Vineyard, located in Kuitpo in the southern Adelaide Hills. Cane pruned, these vines were planted on their own roots in 1997 using the F4V6 clone. Fruit was harvested during the early hours of the morning on the 16th of March at 11.5 Baume.

Grapes were destemmed, crushed and chilled prior to gentle pressing with only the free run component being used for this wine. Fermentation occurred in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks using a sequential yeast inoculation with two yeast strains to increase complexity, mouthfeel and texture. Juice was fermented at cool temperatures (12-13°C) to encourage retention of Sauvignon Blanc varietal characters and the wine was lightly fined and filtered prior to bottling.
