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 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 2018 growing season started slowly, but warmer weather eventually helped to speed things up. Fruit set throughout the region was good and the low rainfall and warm weather from January to April resulted in great sugar development, while a cooler than average March offered ideal night temperatures for colour and flavour development.

Nose The nose is vibrant with aromas of passionfruit, freshly mown grass and just a hint of dried 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.
