Mr. Riggs Wine Co. 'Woodside' Sauvignon Blanc | Adelaide Hills
The Adelaide Hills is one of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia, its diversity in terms of altitude, climate and soil helps to produce its distinctive cool climate wines. The fruit is sourced from five different sites on the one vineyard, some parts are lower lying and colder than other parts of the block which allows for variance in the flavour. The fruit for the Woodside Sauvignon Blanc was machine harvested in the early hours of the morning, it is crushed and free run with no pressings, the juice is then clarified with two aromatic yeast strains. The wine spends a short time on lees until filtration and then bottling.
Fresh and floral with a zesty passionfruit and grapefruit nose.
The mid palate is wonderfully textured with citrus pith and a long crisp finish.
