Grape variety: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Producer: Oxford Landing

Alcohol content: 10.5%

Origin: South Australia

Notes: Wet conditions prevailed in early winter 2014, replenishing the soils of our vineyards at Oxford Landing. From August until mid-summer dry conditions prevailed, which were ideal for our vines to flourish and develop their protective canopies. January was very mild and at times even cool, meaning the Sauvignon Blanc grapes were able to develop intense characters. Rain fell in the middle of January but this was followed by warm to mild weather allowing for a trouble free harvest.

Pale straw in colour with hints of green, this fresh Sauvignon Blanc has zesty aromas of grapefruit, passionfruit, freshly cut grass and green papaya.  The light and lively palate shows layers of fresh guava and lemongrass flavours.  Fine, crunchy acidity helps to focus the taste buds on the finish, which is persistent, clean and refreshing.

 

Critical acclaim

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com - "One of the world's greatest white wine values and a super, everyday wine. The 2014 Oxford Landing Sauvignon Blanc is fresh and really varietal; shows dried citrus, grapefruit peel and savory herbs; crisp and lively on the palate and bright in the finish. Can you see you, your family and friends on the deck with this in the ice bucket? I can! "
