Brand Info In 1986, Geoff Hardy finally found the ideal location for producing cool climate award-winning wines in the Adelaide Hills. This vineyard later became known as the K1 by Geoff Hardy vineyard since this unique site was the first commercial planting of vines in the Kuitpo region.

Story The K1 Sauvignon Blanc vines are in a sandy loam area of the K1 by Geoff Hardy vineyard, situated in the southern Adelaide Hills. The vines are trained to a single cordon and spur pruned to a low bud number to increase fruit quality. 

Vintage The 2019 growing season started with mild weather and below average rainfall. Late spring rain provided relief from the dry conditions but unfortunately contributed to low crops due to the wet weather and windy conditions interfering with fruit set in the vineyard. A couple of hot days in January kept Geoff and the boys in the vineyard. Fortunately, this heat was too early in the ripening cycle to cause any damage to the fruit. After the heat subsided, we experienced a very mild and dry finish to vintage allowing good hang time and flavour development to the smaller than average crop.

Nose The nose is vibrant with aromas of passionfruit, citrus and just a hint of fresh herbs.

Palate The palate is very refreshing, nice and lean, with a trace of snow peas accompanying the gooseberries and passionfruit, leading to a crisp, lingering finish.

Food Pairings Ending on a drier note, this wine is an ideal partner to seafood and less spicy Asian dishes.
