Hill Smith Eden Valley Sauvignon Blanc CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Eden Valley South Australia
Over several generations, with roots dating back to the 19th century, the Hill-Smith family have become expert in locating exceptional sites that maximise the personality of their wines. A favourite playground has been Valley Eden, in the rugged and undulating high country of the Barossa. Sauvignon Blanc is fashioned from parcels grown to the propitious eight hectare Hill-Smith family vineyard. The variations in fruit ripeness, oak treatment and wild yeast adds an extra dimension of complexity and finesse to the wine.

Hill-Smith have a special site for Sauvignon Blanc, five hundred metres above sea level in Eden Valley. The property is protected from wind by indigenous flora. Vines grow dense healthy canopies which provide a wonderful balance of light and shade for ripening. The cooler night time temperatures influence grapes to retain a fresh, natural acidity and intense varietal character. Parcels are picked throughout the cool of night and crushed before allowing the wild yeasts to do their work. Two thirds of the wine are vinified in a selection of seasoned and new French oak puncheons and barriques, the balance in controlled fermenters, followed by a term of six months maturation.
Pale straw with lively green hues. Vibrant notes of lemongrass, lantana and freshly cut green herbs with a hint of passionfruit rind. Wild yeast ferments in oak and lees contact have worked together to create a full flavoured and complex mid palate whilst still retaining the intrinsic zest and flavour of the vineyard. Passionfruit and cut grass flavours drive the textured palate to a persistent and fresh grapefruit pith finish.
