Wine: Heirloom Vineyards Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

Product Code: AUHC709

Availability: In stock



Country: Australia, Adelaide Hills

Tasting Notes: Pale straw; bright and alive; fresh, clean and clear. Intense musk and honey-suckle, dried banana chip, marshmallow and candy. Heightened - extreme - aromatics that takes the variety into fascinating deep-space territory. Purity and tension in a space where no one can hear you ask for a second bottle. The floral qualities continue in and onto the front palate. There is a depth of fruit here, but it is beautifully balanced by keen, razor-edge acidity. Passion-fruit still on the vine, apple and blackcurrant, lime zest and an overarching herbaceousness. This is an exotic and enticing and - in its own way - demanding white wine, thanks to its refreshing stridency and vigour. The balance is found in the purity, however, not sheer shrill power.

Varietal: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Pairing: Oily fish with vibrant, sweet, sour, salty, spicy dressings would welcome this wine. So would a piece of steamed white fish served with a simple beurre blanc and a boiled potato. Chinese fish or vegetable dumplings - and given the wine is a miserly 12% alcohol, a second glass is moderation itself.
