Wrattonbully, on the Limestone Coast, is a land of ancient Terra Rossa soils over a maze of limestone caves – a place of discovery. We named our Wrattonbully vineyard in honour of Australia’s acclaimed geologist and iconic Antarctic explorer, Sir Douglas Mawson. Suitable for vegans and vegetarians

Have not seen a Mawson’s for some time. Could well be a re-release of a brand formerly under the Yalumba banner (now under Hill Smith Family Vineyards). Sauvignon Blanc from Wrattonbully.
It’s a sauvignon blanc with up-front appeal. There’s even some fruit sweetness here. Passionfruit and hay but generally in the tropical fruit flavour spectrum. Intensity of flavour is above average. Commercial style but very good at it. Rating 88 - Campbell Mattinson, Wine Front (JAN/2014)
Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw in colour.
The Mawson’s Cape Denison Sauvignon Blanc is a vivacious wine that opens with passionfruit and lemon curd aromas that unfold into intriguing scents of dried herbs finishing with an elegant perfume of lemon blossom.
The wine is elegant and intense with crisp acidity, a refined pairing of grapefruit pith and citrus punch. The palate excites with freshness and vibrancy, yet full and lingering.
Mawson’s Cape Denison Sauvignon Blanc is best consumed in its youth, try with lemongrass steamed barramundi splashed with soy sauce.
