Tasting Notes

An elegant style that keeps delivering. Focused and vibrant, our Sauvignon Blanc 2019 boasts layers of fragrant gooseberry, bright passionfruit and red capsicum.
Ideal serving temperature: 8 - 10°C

 

Weather Conditions 

Good rainfall in spring promoted healthy canopy growth. December brought fine and dry weather, ideal conditions for a successful flowering and pollination.

From January right into harvest a heat wave and drought gripped the region. Our deep-rooting vines and the moisture-holding clay soils enabled our un-irrigated vineyard to thrive in these challenging conditions and produce a healthy crop with outstanding flavour concentration.

Harvest kicked off on 8 March, the earliest starting date at Blackenbrook’s ever.
