Signature Series Sauvignon Blanc (Australia) - Wine Making Kit
Makes 23L of ultra premium wine, or 30x 750mL bottles @ $12.56 per bottle.
Our Australian Sauvignon Blanc from the Adelaide Hills is delightfully fresh with fruity flavours of juicy peach, honeydew melon, kiwi, hints of tropical fruit and subtle herbal notes. This medium-bodied white wine displays a refreshing acidity with no oak character. A dry sauv blanc with an alcohol level of 13% by volume.
From the French word sauvage meaning “wild” we get the name of this green-skinned grape. Aptly named, as vines of Sauvignon Blanc would grow ferociously if they were never inhibited by the business end of a pair of pruning shears. The flavours of the wine are just as unruly, ranging from acutely grassy to joyfully tropical. Grapes grown in cooler climates tend to produce more acidic wines with flavours of grass and green bell peppers with limited tropical or floral notes. Warmer climates can intensify the tropical fruit character as long as the grower is careful to not let the grapes over ripen on the vine. Sauvignon Blanc experiences little to no enhancement from ageing in the bottle and is almost always consumed young.
The VineCo Signature Sauvignon Blanc has one rule: consume young. With no benefits to aging, you should start enjoying this wine as soon as it’s ready. How you enjoy this wine is entirely up to you. It pairs so well with such a wide range of flavours that you can enjoy it with every course of the meal from appetizers to dessert. This versatility may explain why Sauvignon Blanc is one of the most popular options among the very short list of wines that pair well with sushi.
