Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Clare and Adelaide Hills South Australia
Meet the Cover Drive's girlfriend. Those who know cricket will be aware of the fielding position called Silly Mid On. Close to the batsman, requiring very good reflexes and always at risk of being struck by the ball off the bat. A delicious blend that includes Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon from the Clare Valley, along with Sauvignon Blanc from the Adelaide Hills. Verbosity, big up front, natural fruit sweetness being dominant, unmistakably varietal, a wine to be enjoyed immediately while the primary fruit is still fresh and vibrant.
Semillon grapes are sourced from the Jim Barry's own vineyards, whilst the Adelaide Hills fruit was provided courtesy of cricket loving associates. With its beautiful rolling hills, ideal winter rainfall and Mediterranean climate, the Jim Barry sites retain a unique history of winemaking heritage. Adelaide Hills is the eldest wine region in South Australia, one of the few regions anywhere in the country to enjoy four distinct seasons and has a reputation as one of Australia's areas for Sauvignon Blanc. Silly Mid On is just as remarkable for it's masterful integration of components, as it is for the heightened aromatic profiles, smooth fresh palate, and clean refreshing finish.
Pale straw yellow in colour. It shows brashness and aromatic flavours of passionfruit, gooseberry and freshly mown grass with underlying nuances of herbs and spices. The palate is full of simplicity combined with dimension. It has a scaffold-like structure with a firm acid backbone, a melting pot of fruit flavours, guava, papaya, rockmelon, pineapple and lychee.
