Groote Post Sauvignon Blanc Darling Hills, 2019

DARLING HILLS

Producer

Groote Post

Grape Variety

Sauvignon Blanc

A stunning Sauvignon Blanc from Groote Post. Sauvignon Blanc is the variety that spearheaded the development of viticulture in the Darling region – the cooling influence of the nearby Atlantic brings out all its flavour. And this is probably the best Sauvignon from Groote Post that I have tasted over the years. It has intense aromas of lime fruit, greengages, gooseberries with a hint of boxwood. Delicious fruits continue through on the palate. It is complex and moreish with a long fresh finish. Vines were planted in 1992 and 2002 and after three years of lower than normal rainfall the team were concerned for the vines. However, the northern facing slopes and deep clay rich soils have great moisture retaining properties, yields were down but the quality is excellent.
