Bursting with intense aromas of lemon zest, bell pepper, and nettle, with lively stone fruit notes add allure and complexity. This cooler microclimate delivers a wine with elegant arrays of delicious flavour - a combination of jalapeno, zesty apple, and a crisp passionfruit finish. Whilst this exciting Sauvignon Blanc is deliciously drinkable on its own, we suggest that you explore the sensational pairing of Hillersden Sauvignon Blanc with fresh seafood and grilled spring vegetables.

Wine EnthusiastEarthy notes of mushroom, white pepper, dried leaves and buttered cannellini beans lead over aromas of lemon and stone fruit. The palate boasts mouth-watering acidity yet not without weight and texture, thanks to time maturing on lees.

Wine SpectatorA whiff of fresh-cut grass complements the lemon-lime flavors and green apple notes, accented by a slightly coarse hint of acidity. Drink now. 2,400 cases made.
