Bird in Hand Sauvignon Blanc 2021
Predominantly fruit was sourced from within the high altitude cool pockets of the central Onkaparinga Valley, including Lenswood, Balhannah, Oakbank, Woodside and Charleston to produce a premium quality, classic Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc.
The fruit was gently crushed, destemmed and immediately chilled before being pressed to tank where only the purest free run juice underwent a cool fermentation over approximately 14 days. A short maturation on lees was followed by an early bottling to enhance freshness.
Our Sauvignon Blanc shows lifted, fresh and punchy flavours and aromas, underpinned with classic varietal notes of passionfruit, fresh green apple, grapefruit and faint snow pea. Fresh and delicate, with a textured mid-palate that finishes dry, with lively citrus acidity and light chalkiness. Slightly textured on the mid-palate, it has a dry finish, with subtle citrus acidity.
Best enjoyed young as an aperitif or paired with seafood such as oily grilled fish or chargrilled squid.
