Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia
Adelaide Hills make some of the finest Sauvignon Blanc anywhere in the world, beautifully stylized with tropical florals, delicate flavours, cleanliness and length. Paul and Kathy Drogemuller are completely passionate about the grapes they grow. At vintage they walk through the vineyard tasting grapes, looking for just the right flavours before harvest. Paracombe continues a strong reputation as the essential Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc, a simply stunning wine that's making friends everywhere.
Paracombe vineyard is nestled on a plateau 425 metres above sea level. Soil is lean with ironstone, buckshot gravel and quartz, an interesting remnant from an ancient riverbed. These characters along with minimal irrigation contribute a strong influence in wine style and flavour. Vines on the Paracombe estate are meticulously cared for, taking advantage of the morning sun for optimum fruit ripening, most are planted facing east. Fruit is harvested over four separate picks, predominately from the Drogemuller's Paracombe vineyard and specialist Adelaide Hills growers. Special aromatic yeasts achieve a wine of good flavour, balance and definition, with excellent natural acidity. Alcohol 13.0%
