The Winemaker "A windswept terroir of hills and dry gravelly-clay riverbeds produces crisp tropical sauvignon with gooseberry notes, herbal grassiness, and restrained minerality. Juicy flavors, crisp acidity and long finish pair well with sea foods of all kinds. The perfect wine with Sushi!"
The fruit is from a selection of vineyards across South Australia, mostly in the Adelaide Hills - the home of Australia's finest Sauvignon Blanc.
Republic of Wine wine-makers travel Australia and New Zealand buying the best fruit available. Made in South Australia, the country’s primary wine-producing state. South Australia houses all the big-name regions of Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, Barossa.
The Sauvignon Blanc taste is one of the most identifiable in the world of white wines for a few reasons. First, it always has crisp, high acidity. Second, it has a chemical compound called pyrazine which gives grassy, herbal or bell pepper flavors. When grown in cooler climates or picked early, the herbaceous green character is most prominent. In warmer climates or allowed to hang longer on the vine, the pyrazine character diminishes in favor of riper fruit flavors ranging from grapefruit, to passion fruit and guava.
