2016 BackVintage Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc

2016 BackVintage Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc
Tasting Notes by Nick Bulleid MW
Background

The 2016 vintage was generally mild with low rainfall. Cooler conditions throughout early February meant there were excellent conditions for acid retention and flavour development. Notwithstanding overall yields were higher in 2016 compared to 2015, the fruit showed exceptional quality.


Tasting Notes

Colour
Pale lemon yellow

Nose
An intense nose of tropical fruits with citrus tones and typical grassy notes.

Structure / Palate
The palate shows fresh grapefruit with a gentle hint of passionfruit on the finish. Fresh and beautifully balanced, this Sauvignon Blanc is generously flavoured finishing softly with balanced acidity.

A delicate wine. Its generous flavour, fruit and length combine to present a beautifully balanced wine. You’ll find it delicious with seafood, salads or just by itself. It will be its best while young and into early 2018.
