Sauvignon Blanc from Langhorne Creek. It doesnt really feel right. But if anyone can make a drinkable aromatic white wine from Langhorne (The Verdelho’s are very drinkable) then surely it must be this energetic winery, characterised by its brightly fruited wines.
Just the barest hint of yellow colours this wine and its nice and bright. The nose is all tropical – passionfruit, pawpaw & melon with some musky gewurtz like florals, all leaping out of the glass in fruit driven enthusiasm. The palate is soft and , unsurprisingly, suitably tropical, with generous fruit flavours packed pristinely in a rounded, low acid mould. Its generous, tropical and very drinkable, if in a very open knit and juicy fruit driven style, yet without ever seeming fat or overly ripe. Good stuff.
Drink this poolside (make sure its well chiled) in an exotic, sun drenched exotic location and it will go down a treat. Failing that, a good Thai Stir Fry would be this wines perfect match. 16.9
