Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills South Australia
While Bleasdale is steeped in history, it remains focused on crafting the finest possible styles for contemporary palates. Bleasdale work to the estate founder's philosophy of producing honest, consistent and reliable wines. Less than an hour away in the verdant Adelaide Hills, vineyards which can yield the quality of fruit worthy of the Bleasdale label, have been harvested right at the time that grapes achieve perfect ripeness and judicious levels of crisp acidity. A vivyfying, fragrant and aromatic Sauvignon Blanc to enjoy as aperitif or alongside the freshest faire.
Wander through the rolling and elevated aspects of Adelaide Hills at vintage and you'll find the Bleasdale team hard at work, timing the pick of the crop and collating the choicest parcels from the finest vineyards. They spare no expense in determining those parcels can best deliver a juicy and revitalizing style. Sauvignon Blanc has established its own style here, translating into crisp and vibrant wines with steely acidity, puckering fruit flavours and splendid clean finish. Fruit is crushed and chilled on skins for several hours of optimal extraction. The exclusively fee run juices are fermented to dryness, followed by several weeks of regular lees stirring battonage on light solids. Alcohol 12.5%
