Plus: Adelaide Hills value – the best wines to buy

Rather than mimicking the globally popular New Zealand style of exaggerated herbaceous and tropical fruit aromas, the best Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc wines confidently pursue a distinctive style.

It allows the sunshine in without letting the fruit become broad. It focuses on a mid-palate textural roll that emphasises lush fruit quality, making it a clean, elegant, understated drink.

The flavours ride a firm acid spine that finishes soft rather than hot and raw.
