2021 K1 Sauvignon Blanc
Story: The K1 Sauvignon Blanc vines are the oldest in the Adelaide Hills and are planted in a sandy loam area of the K1 by Geoff Hardy vineyard, a consistent hero of our vineyard. The vines are spur pruned to a low bud number to increase fruit quality.
Vintage: 2021 will be one for the record books in more than one way but as far as vineyards across South Australia are concerned it was near perfect. Higher than average rainfall over winter allowed vines to produce good canopy and the cool – dry summer gave us beautiful even ripening conditions. This slow ripening allows great flavour development and retention of natural acidity.
Nose: The nose lifts effortlessly from the glass filling the senses with vibrant and intense aromas of passionfruit, elderflower, citrus, white peach and just a hint of fresh herbs.
Palate: The palate is super refreshing, crisp and clean, with a trace of florals accompanying citrus and exotic tropical fruits leading to a dry, lingering finish.
Pairing: Crisp and dry, this wine is an ideal partner to seafood and less spicy Asian dishes. Try with freshly shucked oysters.
