From the prestigious South Australia appellation, the Sauvignon Blanc 2021 is a testament to meticulous viticulture. Nestled on deep sandy loam soils positioned 1-1.5 meters above limestone, the vineyard benefits from the region’s cool Mediterranean climate. Embracing a restrained 235mm rainfall and average temperatures of 20°C, the vines yield fruit that beautifully captures the essence of the land.

Under the watchful eye of Nangkita’s winemakers, the Sauvignon Blanc achieves a radiant expression. The process begins with direct pressing, allowing the purest essence of the grapes to shine. Minimal interventions maintain the wine’s authenticity. Aging gracefully, the wine matures solely in stainless steel tanks, with no influence from wood.

In the glass, ‘The Pines’ Sauvignon Blanc 2021 is a testament to freshness, radiance, and vibrancy. Its colour is a depiction of purity, a prelude to the aromatic voyage that follows. Savoury herbs, waxed lemons, and lime zest intertwine with white floral notes, grapefruit skin, and hints of bruised green apples. The palate dances with life, displaying juicy fruit flavours that are complemented by mouthwatering acidity.

The wine’s medium-to-full body and rounded texture reveal its complex character, with a delightful interplay of savoury fruit flavours and a subtle phenolic edge. A harmonious balance of prettiness and flavour, ‘The Pines’ Sauvignon Blanc 2021 is an embodiment of excellent taste. Whether enjoyed on its own or paired with culinary delights like lobster, crayfish, oysters, and grilled seasonal vegetables, this wine beckons you to indulge in the radiance of Southern Fleurieu’s vineyards.
