Mike and Judy Press established their Kenton Valley Vineyards in 1998, when they purchased 34ha of land in the Adelaide Hills at an elevation of 500m. Over the next two years they planted mainstream cool climate varieties (merlot, shiraz, cabernet sauvignon, sauvignon blanc, chardonnay and pinot noir), intending to sell the grapes to other wine producers. Even an illustrious 42-year career in the wine industry did not prepare Mike for the downturn in grape prices that followed, and that led to the development of the Mike Press wine label. 

The vineyard is planted around Mike Press's house, and he makes the wine, delivering unbeatable value. Sub-$20 sauvignon blancs often wobble around the mouth with vague tropical fruits neither seeking nor delivering cause for thought. James Halliday

Mike Press Sauvignon Blanc, served at a low 11.8% alcohol. It’s a little more strict than usual; more straight-laced. It’s gooseberried and herbal but there are flashes of florals and a drive of pure passionfruit; almost into apple. Racy and tart but perfumed and inviting. As with last year I suspect it’s been released a little too young, its feet still setting their stance. But I’d reckon you’re onto a pretty decent thing here, at a more than reasonable price. Tasted : Jul17; Alcohol : 11.8%; Price : $14; Closure : Screwcap; Drink : 2017 - 2019; Rating : 89 Points; Campbell Mattinson; The Wine Front
