Heirloom Vineyards Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc Awards

Posted January 17, 2018

Vintage 2021

  • Huon Hooke, The Real Review (August 2021) - 90 Points
  • Angus Hughson, Wine Pilot (August 2021) - 93 Points

"There is so much to love about Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc from 2021, which is the best vintage for some time for this variety. There is a beautiful brightness and purity of fruit to this example – guava and passionfruit with a pretty dusting of dried herbs. It leads to a juicy palate, the acidity bright and fresh but also beautifully integrated and silky with guava and melon fruits remaining subtle and elegant before a long and concentrated finish. Superb drinking for a hot Summer’s night."

“Highly floral. Spring time aromas (without the need for antihistamines) daffodil, fresh asparagus spear, light chalk dust, easy mandarin peel citrus/tropicals with a hint of richer passionfruit creme."  Regan Drew, VinoNotebook

Vintage 2019

  • Winemaker Challenge International Wine Competition (USA) 2020 – Gold Medal, 93 Points
  • China Wine & Spirits Best Value 2020 - Gold Medal
  • James Halliday Wine Companion, 92 Points

"There's often a savoury element to this wine which makes it a little more interesting! than the many inherently fruit driven examples of sauvignon blanc from the region - and so it is with this vintage. No question the typical varietal characters are mostly present, but there's a minerality about the bouquet, and a slatey, textural quality on the palate which adds a bit extra." Steven Creber, Halliday Wine Companion

"It shoots clean, pure bullets of flavours, all passionfruit and lemongrass, the calibre though noticeably slender. It's an elegant display, its length effectively the highlight."
