Adelaide Hills,SA

Wine and Winery Information

Alta Sauvignon Blanc 2017

The flagship of the Alta family, this stunning Sauvignon blanc is all about the fruit. Punchy aromas of lemongrass, kaffir lime, citrus blossom and passionfruit leap from the glass. Zesty natural acid complements the fleshy lime, spicy lemongrass and ripe stone-fruit flavours that linger deliciously. A subtle creaminess adds depth and texture. The culmination of this flavour fusion makes for a sauvignon blanc that will hold its own in almost any food matching arena. Bold flavours like ocean trout, Thai beef salad or chilli mussels would really do it justice.

Tasting Notes

Winemaker's Comments: The varietal character of Sauvignon Blanc changes dramatically with climate, topography and soil. Warmer climates with free draining soils produce intensely tropical and rich wines, whilst cooler climates with heavier soils result in wines with more structure, greater length and citrus zing. The beauty of the Adelaide Hills wine region, is that it has pockets of both warm and cool climates, with great variation in topography and soil type from one end to the other, resulting in endless possibilities.

Vinification: Considered site selection. Staggered harvest. Minimal intervention. Gentle pressing. Cool, controlled fermentation in stainless steel vats.

Palate: Vibrant, crisp, persistent with intense varietal punch. The spectacular array of varietal character lifting from the glass and driving the palate.

Grapes/Blend: 100%
