Appearance: Pale straw

Nose: Gooseberry, light florals, lemon zest and thyme. The wine wafts readily from the glass with a subtle tropicality; honeydew, rockmelon, and passionfruit

Palate: A zesty palate of white flowers, peach blossom, and green apple. Fine textured and lingering

Food Pairing: Ginger and scallion fish dumplings, or ginger, shiitake, and tofu Chinese dumplings

About the wine: McLaren Vale is the source of many fine wines but it isn’t as often associated with the massively popular Sauvignon Blanc as some other regions. The truth is this intruder has every bit as much punch as its better-known neighbours – perhaps even a little more. 

Vintage 2019 started for Hugh Hamilton with a visit to this vineyard. Where they
would usually sample and see how the fruit was developing over a number of weeks, they harvested this one almost immediately after that first visit, and the timing has proven just right.

Country: McLaren Vale, Australia

Grape Variety: Sauvignon Blanc

ABV: 12.9%
