Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia
Sauvignon Blanc is the first grape variety of vintage to ripen. Local fauna have a naturally sweet tooth and find the juicy, sugar filled berries irresistible. Scarecrows are an old solution to a timeless problem but the delinquent criiters have never learned to distinguish the artfully stuffed rags from the real thing. Those grapes which survive the pilferage are crafted by the Pertaringa team into an engagingly aromatic wine with clean, crisp palate, the ideal choice for service alongside moreton bay bug tails dressed in paprika butter.
Light lemon hues. Vibrant aromas of lemon sherbet, pawpaws, passionfruit and gooseberry. A light, crisp palate laden with fresh tropical notes and autumn vegetable characters, citrus, lemongras and kiwifruits, supported by a beautifully balanced, racy acidity, resolving on a juicy, spotlessly clean finish.
