Howard Vineyard Adelaide Hills 400 Range Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Special Price $18.00 Regular Price $20.00
Classic Adelaide Hills characters of passionfruit and cut grass are here in spades, along with minerality and a core of powerful yet refined acid. A little more textural than your average SB and all the better for it.

Howard own a couple of excellent vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, making small quantities of cracking good wines under their own label and selling a considerable amount of fruit to two of the very best Adelaide Hills producers. The vineyard site is exceptional – Howard don’t need to acid adjust any of the fruit during vinification – an absolute rarity in Australia. This Savvy comes from Block Q in their Schoenthal vineyard and represents the very best SB they grow each year.

Considerably cooler than the surrounding plains, the hills are washed in rain during winter months, and the peaks wrapped in fog. It is considered a high rainfall region compared to other Australian regions, but outside of winter the climate is warm and dry. Night time temperatures are the feature - notably cooler than the day when the sun sets.

This range of moisture and altitudes results in a variety of soils, but in general are sand and clay loam over clay subsoils. A bit of shale and ironstone can be found, and the soil is acidic on average and rarely acidic.

The combination of climate and soil lends to superb cool-weather whites like Riesling (if you watch for mould), Sauvignon Blanc, Pinot Noir and crisp Chardonnays. Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon can also be found, with the grapes maturing
