Sauvignon Blanc thrives in the cool climate and high altitude of the Adelaide Hills, for it is here that the true essence of this variety is nurtured and expressed. The crisp spring and early summer weather preserves the grape's natural acidity, which heightens and defines the flavour of this noble variety. Mojo Sauvignon Blanc is made from premium Sauvignon Blanc grown at various vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, this wine shows lifted fruit salad characters with touches of grassy herbaciousness and finishes with superb length.
Fresh, fleshy palate laden with tropical passionfruit and lychee, shrouded over varietal blackcurrant and fresh peas, all aptly supported by a well balanced natural acidity that displays a spectrum of sherbetty tang through to flinty, minerally notes. The mid palate has solid texture of crunchy green apple and fresh picked herbs with neat traces of creamy meringue like mouthfeel and a waxy lemon element. The finish is long and bone dry leaving a hint of cleansing grapefruit zestiness on the palate.
The grapes were sourced from the Adelaide Hills, and the wine was given left field treatment, part fermented on skins, part barrel-fermented, and given some lees stirring. Very clever winemaking has produced a sauvignon blanc with more structure and texture than usual, but leaving the fresh varietal fruit free play. A great result.
