2019 Sauvignon Blanc

$21.00

Tasting Notes

Paracombe makes one of the finest examples of Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc. The ironstone rich soil profile of the Paracombe vineyard provides a flinty, mineral element to the wine. Specialised attention from our vineyard and winemaking team results in a delicious Sauvignon Blanc showing lifted aromas, good flavour definition.

Lovely tropical flavours & passionfruit along with delicate flavours of stone fruit complexity, zesty peach and clean length set it apart.

What the reviewers are saying

Light straw-green; distinctive tropical passionfruit and kiwi fruit aromas and flavours drive this wine from the first whiff of the bouquet through to the finish of the palate, plus citrussy acidity freshens the lingering aftertaste. James Halliday
