Hunter Valley based Hungerford Hill take a short reach here to the the cool climate region of Tumbarumba for these grapes. Vineyards are planted in the foothills of the Snowy Mountain Range, so it’s not surprise that long slow ripening and cool nights help aromatic varieties.
Hungerford Hill, Sauvignon Blanc, Tumbarumba, 2021
Pale, near clear light lemon colour. Pungent, varietal aromas of passionfruit pulp and skin, fresh young asparagus spears, tropical pawpaw flesh, green apple skin, a slice or two of green capsicum and grapefruit citrus. Presents with a balanced palate weight: no shrinking or shirking or shrieking. Generous citrus sorbet fruit dollops with zesty, juicy acidity driving through the clean finish. A well thought through Sauv Blanc
Rating: 17.5/20 (90/100)
