K1 by Geoff Hardy

2019 K1 Sauvignon Blanc 2019 - Adelaide Hills

2019 Sauvignon Blanc

Adelaide Hills

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.
