Pemberton produces Sauvignon Blanc with subtle herbaceous characters and a savoury mineral flavour, atypical of Australian Sauvignon Blanc.

4 Stars / 91 Points - "Pemberton certainly does deliver some impressive, restrained and minerally sauvignon blanc wines; here it’s nice and flinty, and sporting some concentrated tropical fruits. The palate, more savoury than most, really flinty and elegant, has poise and refined style." - Nick Stock - Penguin Good Australian Wine Guide 2009 - November 2008.
94 Points & Outstanding - "Stong varietal sauvignon, with cut grass, nettle and bright acidity; good depth of fruit and quite long and flavoursome on the finish." - James Halliday - James Halliday Wine Companion 2009 - July 2008.
88 Points - "A clean, crisp and correct, but very light-bodied wine, with just a few nuances of gooseberry, apple and citrus.” - James Halliday - James Halliday Wine Companion 2008 - January 2008.
Winery Tasting Notes
A beautifully vibrant wine that has a bit of everything. Immediately after opening the nose shows fresh passion fruit and lime zest, with a touch of rose petal and perfumed dried herbs. As the palate opens up there is plenty of sweet exotic tropical fruit, lemon, lime and orange with some dried herbs and nettle. There is even some spicy apple, an influence from the fruit derived from the Hilltop block, higher up the slope. The lovely mineral like acid that is so typically Pemberton, lefts the freshness and intensity of the flavours up to another level and enables the wine to finish crisp and savoury.
