Murdoch Hill Sauvignon Blanc
Sorry, currently out of stock
Current Vintage: 2020
Michael Downer crafts this Sauvignon Blanc from a parcel of 20-year-old vines rooted in the sandy mineral soils of Murdoch Hill's high-altitude Oakbank Vineyard in the Onkaparinga Valley.
Thirty per cent of the wine was warm-settled to retain solids and naturally fermented in older barriques for texture and structure. The remainder was handpicked and chilled overnight, then crushed and gently pressed to tank. The resulting wine is signature Murdoch Hills: a citrus-driven, bright and juicy Sauvignon with fabulously limey fruit and a long, mouth-watering finish.
In the Adelaide Hills wine region, winemakers make bold decisions to produce unique wines. Just 20 minutes from Adelaide, it's a lush, leafy retreat with more going on than meets the eye.
The landscape here is as diverse as the wines. Roads twist and turn, and steep hills and valleys create different microclimates. it's a region that inspires creativity in its artists, its food producers and its winemakers.
The Adelaide Hills is a relatively young wine region that's playing a vital part in the evolution of Australian wine. it's acclaimed for cool-climate classics like Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, and is pushing the case for alternative varieties.
