Seven Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2019
Seven Hills Sauvignon Blanc is zesty and refreshing, the perfect companion on a sunny patio.
Pale as a ghost with gentle yellow and green hues. Straightforward bouquet of bright citrus fruit, sweet honeysuckle and grass. The medium-bodied and dry palate has light flavours, an undercurrent richness and tight acidity to stitch it all together. Flavours of lemon curd, lime zest and white grapefruit with a dash of sliced peaches, white pepper and wet stone. Closes in a refreshing and lingering citrus finish.
95% Sauvignon Blanc, 4% Semillon and 1% Muscat. The fruit comes from renowned growers of small, old vine and hillside sites in the Columbia Valley.
Seven Hills winemakers carefully select an assortment of small vineyards that farm by hand, focusing on old vine and hillside sites to source complementary components of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Muscat. Fermentation for most of the juice occurs in stainless steel, 10% in large capacity Fraîcheur and Craie barrels that were specifically designed for white Bordeaux varieties. The barrel fermentation lends richness and density to the wine, whilst the stainless steel emphasises fruit and vibrancy.

There’s no mistaking the variety, with its aromas of kiwi, grass and white grapefruit. Textured, medium-bodied flavors follow. A fine sense of acidity stitches it all up tightly.
