  • Longview Whippet Sauvignon Blanc 2016

Aromas of guava, mangosteen, green beans, honeysuckle, and lemon. The palate displays refreshing, green bean and nettle characters and with great intensity of fruit flavours and a long persistent finish. A brilliant dry white from Adelaide Hills, the only Australian region capable of producing a Marlborough style Sauvignon Blanc.

Winemaking 

Whippet Sauvignon Blanc is sourced entirely from Longview Vineyard in Macclesfield, Adelaide Hills. The fruit was hand-picked in early am, chilled to 10°C, the juice separated and skins pressed. Bentonite fining ensures a bright finish.


In The Spotlight


Bronze Medal - 2017 Decanter World Wine Awards.

90 Points – Gary Walsh, Winefront. “They race whippets, as I recall. They are kind of like mini greyhounds. And as Mike Baird likes to say ‘When a problem comes along, you must whippet’. This is quite a light and racy style, as it happens. Subtle capsicum spice, grapefruit, passionfruit and a slight smokiness. Grapefruit and passionfruit, delivers enough flavour without being over-the-top, light chalkiness to the texture and grapefruity acidity to close. Feels a bit coarse on the finish, but stays trim and neat. Good.”

Bronze Medal – 2016 Royal Adelaide Wine Show.

Silver Medal – 2016 New York International Wine Competition.

92 points & TOP 100 - The Advertiser, Tony Love.

93 points – Martin Field, Wine Talk. “Adelaide Hills, South Australia. A refreshing change from the endless New Zealand sauvignon blanc that seems to be the Sunshine Coast’s most popular wine. Light and pale to the eye. There are aromatics of white flowers and asparagus in the bouquet. In the mouth the wine is dry and generously fruity. A true fruit cocktail at the tangy end of the fruit spectrum - I tasted hints of kiwifruit, passion fruit, pineapple and lychee. Great as an aperitif or entrée wine.”
