Leabrook Estate Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Leabrook Estate is a family-owned boutique winery located in the cool climate Adelaide Hills at Balhannah in South Australia. From an engineering background and having made wine for 35 years, Colin Best is the winemaker and grapegrower. His wife, Chris, manages the marketing and sales for the company. Leabrook Estate specialises in high quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay and produces a range of other cool-climate variety wines including Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc. This Sauvignon Blanc not only has a characteristic gooseberry nose, but the palate is full and long with beautiful passionfruit and citrus flavours. The acid is well balanced to compliment the fruit, which gives a lingering aftertaste. As with all Leabrook Estate wines, this wine is made to compliment food especially. This is achieved by winemaking methods akin to those of white Bordeaux, extracting stronger flavours and aromas providing a full and complex palate and long aftertaste that will compliment many dishes, compared with the apertif, lighter sauvignon blanc style wines.
