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

"A vibrant punchy sav blanc brimming with lots of beautiful guava and gooseberry nuances with some nice elevating citrus and tart grapefruit thrown in. Theres a small amount of semillon which brings a little herbaceousness to the final mix. Good wine. Rating 91 -Ray Jordan, (09/SEP/2010)
Winery Tasting Notes
Immediately after opening the nose shows guava, fresh passion fruit, lemon and lime zest.
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 bock, higher up the slope.
The lovely mineral like acid that is so typically Pemberton, lifts the freshness and intensity of the flavours up to another level and enables the wine to finish crisp and savoury.
