Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia
Renowned for world class Sauvignon Blanc, Bridgewater Mill carries the flair that extols the virtuous fruit of Adelaide Hills finest vineyards. Bridgewater Mill is made by the Petaluma winemaking team, fully focused on producing cool climate Adelaide Hills wines. Petaluma's sensational Sauvignon Blanc is true to style year in and year out, with crisp natural acids and clear varietal character. All hands take a gentle and non intrusive approach to vinification, unlocking the freshness and vitality of fruit which best reflects the essence of Adelaide Hills in a bottle.
Sauvignon Blanc from the Deanery and Martin Hill Vineyard are supplemented by superb harvests from Lobethal and Piccadilly. After de-stemming and crushing, the chilled must, skins, seed and juices are pressed. Cold juices flow away to tank and are ettled by gravity into insulated tanks before racking onto Petaluma's chosen yeasts for vinification. The wine was fermented cool, 12C to 15C until very near complete dryness, achieving the correct balance of fruit and acid that gives Bridgewater Mill it's style and mouth watering freshness. The finished wine was cold settled to clarity before racking and a gentle filtration to bottle, capturing all the fragile, vibrant Sauvignon Blanc characters.
Pale straw colour. Intense varietal aromas of fresh, ripe tropical fruits with exotic herbaceous characters and great minerality. Gooseberry and slatey bouquets, wafts of lychee and bean, florid elements and fine herbs. The palate has substantial flavour and texture and finishes with crisp mineral dryness. Punchy fruit on the palate and on the nose, the vegetable and floral aromatics are integral to it's universal appeal. The dry, tangy finish makes it innately suitable to cheeses and seafood.
