Palate Profile

Bursting from the glass comes passionfruit pulp scooped out of the hull, guava and honeydew wedges. Aromas of subtle jasmine blossom and white grapefruit juice. The palate takes on more of a lemon citrus tone with nashi pear and crisp Johnny apple flesh. A luscious mouth feel is complemented by racy acidity and the wine finishes with a swift crispness that only the Hills can provide.  

Critic Awards

You just have to remark at the pedigree of this wine, it’s impossible not to adore it and see why it dominates the Sauvignon Blanc landscape of Australia. The 2022 is elegant and packed to the brim with tropical and citrus fruit followed by a svelte structure.

Very fresh nose with a wide spectrum of aromas, ranging from forthrightly grassy and fresh-basil notes to gooseberry, grapefruit and passion fruit, this is a juicy and elegant Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc. Long, racy finish.

A cool, low-yielding and attenuated year, good for the sort of varieties that excel in these parts. Cool fermented without oak. A smart wine that hits all the marks the sauvignon blanc fanbase expect, with pink grapefruit, guava and nettle accents flowing long across a rivulet of juicy acidity. Straightforward wine done well.

You have to admire the balance. This medium-intensity wine gives a clear nod to its variety – there are grass and nettle notes here – but, at the same time, it keeps these notes modest and tucked within, the purer and more accessible apple and tropical fruit flavours allowed therefore to shine.
