Sauvignon Blanc 2021 – Black Market Deal #40745
- Light, aromatic
- Adelaide Hills
Too often all sauv blanc is lumped into the same category. Truth is the grape expresses itself quite differently depending on where it is grown. Adelaide Hills savvy bee tends to have bright fruit, though not as tropical as that of the Kiwi variety. It also has some structure, but not the austere structure found in wines from Sancerre. You could call it your Goldilocks style. And speaking of gold, this one boasts a trophy and a gold medal. Not too shabby we think! It’s zesty with notes of grapefruit and passionfruit, finishing with crisp citrus acidity that carries the texture for ages. All in all, it’s just right!

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.
