Woodstock Sauvignon Blanc - Adelaide Hills, Australia - 75cl
In this lovely Aussie sauv blanc, you'll find the signature Adelaide Hills characteristics: citrus and subtle passionfruit flavours, alongside grassy notes. Refreshing and crisp, this a crowd-pleaser.
The Woodstock winery is located in McLaren Vale, just south of Adelaide. Owner, Scott Collett, sources his grapes from 18 hectares of vineyards which include Shiraz vines that are up to 110 years old. Many people see Australia very much as a “New World” producer, but vineyards such as these are a timely reminder of its long history of winemaking.
Grape vines are usually ripped up and replaced after twenty to thirty years, as the older they get, the less productive they become. But, while grape productivity may decrease, the concentration of flavours in the grapes intensify each year.
