Saint & Scholar Sauvignon BlancRegular price $25.00
Aroma & Palate
|Passionfruit, almond, apricot|
Aromatic, with the expected passionfruit bringing quieter friends almond and cremini along for the ride on the palate. Pale, dry, crispy acid, personable and with all the Adelaide Hills Sauv Blanc luxury you'd expect.
Bright fresh aromas of mango, pineapples and passionfruit, combined with a citrus burst ensure the wine stays varietal, yet restrained. A delicate floral note, with a nutty creamy edge offers a final unexpected touch of complexity, on this tight yet balanced nose.
Not an overstated nose, but more balanced and controlled. The palate screams warm weather, with bright zippy acidity rolling across the tongue leading into flavours of citrus and fresh tropical fruit that encapsulate ocean views.
Focused phenolics and a touch of creaminess balance attractively with the acid drive, and impact their little piece of texture. Pair this Sauvignon Blanc with herb crusted Snapper, and you are in for a summer treat all year round.
