Hello beautiful sunsets and Sauvignon Blanc.
This 2018 Sauv Blanc hails from 3drops down in WA’ Great Southern region. Mount Barker in fact. They don’t have a cellar door but they do deliver Australia-wide and are at plenty events around the country.
The brand is owned and operated by Joanne Bradbury who contracts Ray Williams as her viticulturist (managing the vineyard) and Rob Diletti as her winemaker.
2018 was said to be an outstanding vintage with great growing conditions in the Great Southern, so I was excited to get stuck into this Sauvy B, here are our notes:
Nearly a water-white colour in the glass with a slight lemon-lime tinge. The nose is floral and herby with some fresh guava notes coming through. While in the mouth it’s nice and dry with a bit of orange acidity and a rather elegant nature. Refreshing sand easy drinking.
This wine was sent to me direct from the winery as a sample, I was under no obligation to post about it.
All opinions are based on my own taste buds. Wine is subjective & always evolving, so make sure you drink what you enjoy.
