Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Hillersden

Bursting with intense aromas of lemon zest, bell pepper and nettle, with lively stone fruit notes adding allure and complexity. This cooler microclimate delivers a wine with an elegant array of delicious flavor, a combination of jalapeño, zesty apple, and a crisp passionfruit finish. While this exciting Sauvignon Blanc is deliciously drinkable on its own, we suggest that you explore the pairing of Hillersden Sauvignon Blanc with fresh seafood and grilled spring vegetables.

Reviews

  • "91 points. Editors' Choice. Earthy notes of mushroom, white pepper, dried leaves and buttered cannellini beans lead over aromas of lemon and stone fruit. The palate boasts mouth-watering acidity yet not without weight and texture, thanks to time maturing on lees." (Wine Enthusiast)
