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 2016 vintage was in general very mild with low rainfall. The lack of rain looked like it would result in a quick harvest, but a big downpour in early February made sure the vintage was more evenly spread out. The yields were up on the couple of previous years and the quality is looking great.

Nose The nose is vibrant with aromas of gooseberries, ruby grapefruit and green mango complemented by notes of elderflower and green peas.

Palate The palate is clean and crisp with a linear acidity.

Food Pairings Ending on a drier note, this wine is perfect with Asian cuisine and seafood dishes.
