- BY the CASE
Sauvignon blanc is a green-skinned grape variety that originates from the Bordeaux region of France. The grape most likely gets its name from the French words sauvage ("wild") and blanc ("white") due to its early origins as an indigenous grape in South West France. It is possibly a descendant of Savagnin. Sauvignon blanc is planted in many of the world's wine regions, producing a crisp, dry, and refreshing white varietal wine. The grape is also a component of the famous dessert wines from Sauternes and Barsac. Sauvignon blanc is widely cultivated in France, Australia, and New Zealand.
The blend combines the world renowned characteristics of vibrant young Hunter Semillon with lively Sauvignon Blanc & is best described as a 'user-friendly'.
Ripe passionfruit aromas on the nose are balanced by citrus & tropical flavours of Hunter Semillon on the palate.
Crisp refreshing flavours & only 10.5% alcohol - this is a perfect wine for the Singapore climate.

"There you have it: pure, unadorned Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc traversing cut grass gooseberry, passionfruit & lychee, mooching quietly along until it markedly lifts its intensity on the finish, with citrussy acidity joining the fray." - James Halliday
