Winery Tasting Notes
Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2014: Distinctly Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc exudes vibrant ripe citrus notes, crunchy greens & hints of tropical guava on the nose.The palate is refined and elegant with superb natural fruit weight providing a juicy core of layered fruit, entwined with a salty textural acidity, vibrant citrus pith and a moreish dry chalky finish. Another remarkable Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc.
Brokenwood Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2015: Our style for this wine is to not have too many green grassy characters, but more lifted tropical Sauvignon Blanc aromas and melon notes.Lovely soft round entry on the palate and, even at 12%, there is plenty of fruit richness. Grapefruit flavours and a zesty acidity give a pleasing finish to the wine. A perfect summer drink and great with a wide range of food.
Mount Pleasant `Singing in the Rain` Verdelho 2015: Lifted tropical aromas of guava and honeydew melon with hints of floral honey. Intense tropical fruits of pineapple, melon and fresh banana with refreshing acidity which lingers, giving a pleasing fruit driven persistence of flavour.
Angove `Brightlands` Chardonnay 2015: A crowd favourite modern Chardonnay, light, fruit filled and well balanced. Melon and bright tropical fruit with deft oak characters.
Adelaide Winemakers `Landcross` Pinot Grigio 2015: A ripe, lifted and floral nose of pears and quinces. Clear and fresh fruit. A clean and zesty natural acidity gives a bright start laong with a lingering finish. The fruit softens and fills out the middle of the palate.
Crushed Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2014: This wine reveals fresh aromas of lemongrass, lychee and cut hay. With flavours of pineapple and green bean with a touch of lime. A refreshing palate that follows through with the lingering flavours of red apple and gooseberry. The limestone gravel soils of Western Australia provide minerality for this exciting and vibrant wine.
