Adelaide Hills is one of the coolest and most elevated wine regions in Australia. Nestled amongst some of the country's most famous warm-climate regions like Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale, the region's elevation lends it a distinctly cool climate.
Its popularity has soared in the last twenty years and Adelaide Hills is quickly becoming one of Australia's most important growing regions; it has established a strong reputation for premium wines and has set the benchmark for Sauvignon Blanc in the country.
Sauvignon Blanc loves a cool climate and the region's steep hills and valleys and cool but sunny days produce grapes with full flavour, strong varietal character, and a refreshing and defined acidity making the wine aromatic and fresh with vibrant fruit flavours of passion fruit, tropical fruit, citrus, with notes of melon and herb. Juicy but crisp with refreshing acidity.
For food pairing ideas, go green! Sauvignon Blanc has an herbal note that works well with fresh green herb dishes like basil pesto or green hummus. For meat, choose chicken, turkey, or white fish. Sauvignon Blanc is the best pairing for a wide variety of seafood choices and is especially good with bacon-wrapped scallops.
