S.C. Pannell Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Aromas of nettle, lemon zest, white currant, fresh jalapeno chillies and sweet corn proceed a pallet that is higher in acidity and lower in alcohol than previous vintages and showing all the hallmarks of classic Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc. S.C. Pannell Sauvignon Blanc 2018 is long, tight, persistent and nuanced flavours with steely and mineral acidity and a flinty finish.
The Adelaide Hills 2018 vintage was, thankfully, a gentle and kind affair. Good winter rain, late budburst and a cool, mild harvest gave the grapes natural acidity and vibrant fruit flavours. Ideal conditions for a balanced crop and therefore, balanced wine.
