Ariadne Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2019
High Altitude Cool Climate Freshness
Ariadne Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Region: Adelaide Hills, South Australia

Sauvignon Blanc is a variety considered to develop the most interesting, crisp flavours when grown in a cool climate. At low elevations across mainland Australia the grape ripening period is too warm, and the wines take on a fuller, riper, tropical flavour.

Thus for the preferred cooler taste expression vineyards need to be near the cold of the southern coastline or above 400 metres or even higher if the vineyard is well away from the coastal weather. The grape source for the 2019 is from same area as the 2018 with the vineyard located at Woodside, in the Adelaide Hills at about 600 metres.

Winemaking techniques were the same as previous vintages so any differences in taste are those created by the weather. Bottom line is tasters will find the same fresh, clean, crisp taste as expected with considerable complexity to discover on the palate which is attributed to the vineyard source.

Price: $9.99

Ariadne Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2018
Exceptional Quality
Ariadne Adelaide Hills Chardonnay 2018

Region:Adelaide Hills, SA

The region called the Adelaide Hills extends NE-SW for 70 kilometres, a very large region of which about 4000 hectares are vineyards.

It covers a patch of high ground, above 300 metres and up to 600 metres, lying to the east of Adelaide. Imagine a patch work quilt of vineyards rather than an extensive sheet of co-joined vineyards.

This means the region is a place of great diversity of styles though the average quality is high to very high. Vineyards face all directions with variable angles of slope and exposure. Being higher it is cooler so we like the whites while being cautious about the reds. Exceptional Chardonnays have been made for decades and are still improving in quality. We did not make this wine but purchased it from a maker we follow.

Price: $10.99
