Sauvignon Blanc 2020 – Black Market Deal #39872
- Fresh, juicy
- Adelaide Hills
The producer behind this tasty sauvignon blanc is a bit of a master in aromatic whites. With a vineyard covering all sorts of Alsatian and Austrian white varieties, the cool nights and the long season of the Hills provide the right environment for so many white varieties to flourish. In the case of this savvy - it is flourishing alright! Zesty acidity and freshness is balanced by passionfruit and floral notes. The wine is super-approachable and just what you’d expect from a producer of this calibre.

Don't kid yourselves, the Adelaide Hills are bigger and much more diverse than they seem. It stretches over 80km from the Barossa Valley in the North to McLaren Vale in the South. The area is so variable that small pockets such as Piccadilly and Longwood can only ripen marginal such as Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, whereas other specific areas are perfect for peppery Shiraz and ballsy Cabernet. A healthy mix of experienced hands and young hipsters ensure the region stays at the cutting edge of the industry. Natural wines, and new European varieties including Nebbiolo and Gruner Veltliner are some of the more recent highlights to keep an eye out for.
