RRP $19.99

$18.99 per Bottle
$113.94 per pack

Sauvignon Blanc has found a natural home in the high altitude and cool climate of the Adelaide Hills. Nepenthe has been producing Sauvignon Blanc since its inaugural vintage in 1997, throughout the ensuing years and vintages the Nepenthe Sauvignon Blanc has gained recognition as a benchmark within the industry.

Altitude Sauvignon Blanc, a well-balanced, complex and creamy wine unique in character, classically Nepenthe.

The 2016 vintage turned out to be a beautiful vintage and will most likely be remembered as one of the great years in winemaking and wine-enjoying circles alike. After a winter with much lower than average rainfall, the season started with worried growers, but timely summer rainfall in late January and February came as a welcome relief and ensured fruit quality to be exceptional.

Winery Profile

5 Red Star Winery - James Halliday, Australian Wine Companion 2014

Nepenthe quickly established its reputation as a producer of high quality wines, but when founder Ed Tweddell died unexpectedly in 2006, the business was purchased by McGuigan Simeon the following year. The winery was closed in 09, and winemaking operations transferred to Australian Vintage, McGuigan Simeons principal SA winery. (The Nepenthe winery has since been purchased by Peter Leske and Mark Kozned, and provides contract winemaking services via their Revenir venture.) Nepenthe has over 100ha of close-planted vineyards spread over four vineyards in the Adelaide Hills, with an exotic array of varieties. Exports to the UK, the US and other major markets.James Halliday
