Winemaker Notes

The 2018 H Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of nettle, lime zest and papaya. The palate is medium-bodied with flavors of preserved lemon, nectarine and cantaloupe melon, complexed by subtle French oak nuances. The wine finishes fresh with a balanced texture and acidity.

WE 91
Wine Enthusiast
Pale gold in color, this Sauvignon Blanc from the recently relocated Henry's Drive team, is a shining example of the Adelaide Hills' ability to make world class Sauvignon Blanc. The nose is a perfumed fruit bowl of pineapples, apples, limes and orange peel with touches of honeysuckle. It's medium in weight, with slippery texture and fantastically crunchy acidity with a copper-penny-like tang. Food-friendly, this would make an excellent bottle to bring to a summertime dinner party. Editors' Choice.
V 91
Vinous

Light straw-yellow. Displays musky lemon pith and pear skin scents and suggestions of succulent herbs and jasmine. Chewy and focused on the palate, bitter citrus rind and dried peach flavors open up slowly on the back half. This has weight as well as liveliness. Closes long and nervy, with the pear and herb notes repeating. Raised in French oak barrels of varying size, 20% of them new.

A narrow band of hills and valleys east of the city of Adelaide, the Adelaide Hills region is a diverse landscape featuring a variety of microclimates. In general it is moderate with high-altitude areas cooler and wetter compared to its warmer, lower areas.

Piccadilly Valley, the part of Adelaide Hills closest to the city, was first staked out by a grower named Brian Croser, in the 1970s for a cool spot to grow Chardonnay, then uncommon in Australia. Today a good amount of the Chardonnay goes to winemakers outside of the region.

Producers here experiment with other cool-climate loving aromatic varieties like Pinot Gris, Viognier and Riesling. Charming sparkling wine is also possible. On its north side, lower, west-facing slopes make full-bodied Shiraz.

Capable of a vast array of styles, Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, refreshing variety that equally reflects both terroir and varietal character. Though it can vary depending on where it is grown, a couple of commonalities always exist—namely, zesty acidity and intense aromatics. This variety is of French provenance. Somm Secret—Along with Cabernet Franc, Sauvignon Blanc is a proud parent of Cabernet Sauvignon. That green bell pepper aroma that all three varieties share is no coincidence—it comes from a high concentration of pyrazines (herbaceous aromatic compounds) inherent to each member of the family.
