d’Arenberg The Broken Fishplate Sauvignon Blanc 2018

d’Arenberg’s aromatic white comes from the nearby Adelaide Hills.

d’Arenberg, The Broken Fishplate, Sauvignon Blanc, Adelaide Hills, 2018

Partial barrel fermentation in aged French oak gives a malty cereal note to underpin bright tropicals with a smoky, leafy ashen note. Carrying a touch of heft, through a slightly viscous mid-palate. The tropical notes aren’t over blown, nor is it too grassy but there’s varietal passion, gooseberry and green capsicum skin. Easy acidity to finish.

RRP: $20
Alc: 13%
Rating: 16.5/20
