Wine and Winery Information

2016 Sauvignon blanc
Adelaide hills

Utilising premium fruit from eminent wine regions in South Australia, The Black Chook struts affordable wines to be enjoyed and adored, shared and celebrated! Careful vineyard selection teamed with exceptional winemaking and an emphasis on consistent varietal expression hatches wines with approachability generosity and character that really are something to cluck about.

The fruit for this Sauvignon Blanc is from South Australia’s premium cool climate grape growing region, the Adelaide Hills. The unequivocally cool climate and very old podzolic soils over a quartz base of low to moderate fertility make for ideal growing conditions, giving the Adelaide Hills an enviable and growing reputation for magnificent white grapes. Due to the cool ripening periods during the spring of 2015, vintage 2016 has delivered exceptional quality and balance.

Sauvignon Blanc parcels were harvested when grapes displayed perfect balance between sugar, acid and tropical fruit flavours. Fruit was destemmed then crushed and sent straight to press. Juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks at cool temperatures to help encourage varietal expression and flavour. Post fermentation, wine parcels were blended to achieve the desired wine style with a lifted bouquet and fine fruit profile.

A vibrant nose of tropical fruits, sweet melon and citrus tones with hints of nettle. The palate shows a passionfruit sweetness and a touch of grapefruit, with plenty of flavour and fruit length.
