REVIEW: Q-WINE - STEVE LESZCZYNSKI - 01.07.17 87 POINTS
“An easy drinking white wine headlined by attractive tropical fruit - think guava, green melon, lemon juice and passion fruit. More fruit less grassiness - the way Sauvignon Blanc should be. The mouth is coated well and the finish clean and crisp with some fresh herbs whipping up the tail. A very reasonable wine and well priced.”
TASTING NOTES FROM THE WINERY
Angove Organic Sauvignon Blanc is a single vineyard wine made from organically certified grapes grown in our own Nanya Vineyard, near Paringa South Australia.
Vintage 2017 in the heartland of the Australian industry returned somewhat to normal after 5+ years of fast furious compressed harvests. Cool conditions, interspersed with some refreshing rain, meant fantastic varietal expression in many white varieties including Sauvignon Blanc.
Picked late at night to harvest the grapes as cold as possible the grapes were transported to the winery and pressed using modern tank presses. After cold setting the clear juice was carefully racked to cooled fermentation tanks and inoculated with selected yeasts. Cool fermentation was followed by minimal handling filtration and bottling at the Angove winery.
COLOUR Crystal clear with subtle yellow/green hues.
AROMA Tropical aromas of limes, guava, and passionfruit with delicate herbal edge.
FLAVOUR Refreshing and lively palate with tropical fruit characters and a clean, fresh finish.
