SC Pannell Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Product Description

The Adelaide Hills 2018 vintage was, thankfully, a gentle and kind affair. Good winter rain, late budburst and a cool, mild harvest gave the grapes natural acidity and vibrant fruit flavours. Ideal conditions for a balanced crop and therefore, balanced wine.
This is 100% Sauvignon Blanc from the Carey Gully vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. Hand-harvested on 18th and 23rd March. Free-run juice only, settled to clear and fermented without solids for three weeks. Settled on lees for eight weeks before bottling. Alcohol 13%; pH 3.10; TA 7.5g/L.
Aromas of nettle, lemon zest, white currant, fresh jalapeño chillies and sweetcorn precede a pallet that is higher in acidity and lower in alcohol than previous vintages and showing all the hallmarks of classic Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc. The palate shows long, tight, persistent and nuanced flavours with steely, mineral acidity and a flinty finish. - Stephen Pannell

REVUES ON SOME PREVIOUS VINTAGES

SC Pannell Sauvignon Blanc 2012
"Pale quartz; an unusual sauvignon blanc because it creeps up on you, revealing more and more as it is retasted; passionfruit, grapefruit and guava are held in a web of minerally acidity, the finish lingering long. Very good food style."
95 Points James Halliday


"The Adelaide Hills is recognized as one of Australia’s finest Sauvignon Blanc growing regions: the altitude, soils and weather patterns seem to draw the best from this variety.

 

The 2012 Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc is an exceptional wine with intense flavour concentration and complexity. There is great natural acidity due to the very low yields experienced throughout the region and the moderate consistent weather during ripening.

 

I think this is the most flavoursome Sauvignon Blanc I have made yet." Stephen Pannell

SC Pannell Sauvignon Blanc 2011

"Pale straw-green; this is a very tightly focused and intense wine, with grapefruit, kiwi fruit and ripe citrus welded together, the finish and aftertaste of astonishing length and purity."

96 Points James Halliday - Published on 18 Nov 2011
