Colour Bright and fresh with green colour and light straw tint. Youthful.
Nose An aromatic style with light tropical fruit and light herbal asparagus with a green apple edge. Some interesting complexity from interaction with light creamy oak.
Palate Medium plate weight with bright green fruits with a citric, lime juice nuance. Subtle texture on the palate adds a deliciousness and a fresh clean finish.

VINIFICATION:

This vintage of Blackbilly Sauvignon blanc is sourced from premium vineyards in the cooler parts of the Adelaide zone, specifically Currency
Creek. Distinctive in varietal aromatics and flavours this is truly an exciting wine style typical of the variety.

2015 was characterised by a short, warm ripening season which has produced flavoursome, expressive wines that show excellent fruit and length of flavour.

Simple, minimalist winemaking techniques are used with emphasis given to preservation of fruit and varietal character. We have bottled it under a screw cap seal to maximise freshness. It is intended to be drunk as a young wine, served chilled with seafood & white meats or as an aperitif.

WINEMAKERS COMMENTS:

Ideally drink now but short term cellaring will add further complexity and varietal definition.

Crustacean, fish or freshly shucked oysters. Good aperitif drink as well.
