Shottesbrooke Sauvignon Blanc 2017

From two cool sites in the Adelaide Hills, Kuipto (around 200m above sea level) and Woodside (350m). A little bit of winemaking gone on here to bring some richness to the wine: partial wild fermentation in 2 & 3 year old oak, the remainder in stainless steel.

Aromas of fresh cut grass sprinkled over light tropical fruit salad and lime juice. Some depth to the palate with a good amount of grip providing body to the stereotypical light tropical fruits and citrus. There’s a pleasant earthiness to the wine, while the acidity is zingy and bright without being harsh. Cleanly made.
