The 2013 growing season was a warmer and drier year than average in both the Barossa Valley and Adelaide Hills. Prudent handling of harvested fruit was crucial to reduce phenolic and tannin influence with the aim of the winemakers being to retain freshness and direction in the juice. Once harvested both parcels were fermented separately and blended at the last minute to retain clear varietal characteristics. The result is a crisp, and lean SSB for 2013.

Winery Tasting Notes
Pale straw with green tinges.
Tight and clean where subtle aromas of classic Sauvignon Blanc gooseberry fruit intermingle with secondary more mineral aromas of river stone and powder puff bath salt perfume.
Gooseberry and citrus primary fruit characters show up front before the wine reveals its structure with a clear and direct line and some dynamism on the mid and back palate. The finish is fresh with a touch of grip.
