Colour

Very pale with pristine clarity and flashes of green.

Bouquet

Passionfruit, gooseberry and freshly squeezed citrus dominate, followed by more subtle grassy, leafy notes and a touch of kaffir lime.

Palate

Wonderfully fresh and showing precise varietal fruits: tangy passionfruit, grapefruit and lemongrass. Long and punchy with great purity, line and a mouth-watering, lime-juice acidity.

Professional Reviews

It’s clean and lean, like Savvy-b can be, grassy like gooseberry or oxalis. Fresh as a meadow in spring. The form of the wine – its texture – is not your ordinary water-and-acid version like other examples of blonde sauvignon. This one offers more generosity of form without losing its sense of purpose, which is to refresh and cleanse. Then it goes away. Nothing more complex than that.

Phillip White, InDaily

Based in McLaren Vale for its well-known red wine portfolio, Wirra Wirra heads to the neighbouring Hills region for three whites, this, a Riesling and a chardonnay, all of which are highly recommended. This is designated a single site make, the vineyard named on the back label, and is the kind of modern sauvignon worth seeking out as it’s more subtle in its nose-punch than Kiwi styles, though still with some tropical notes but with grapefruit, lime and even some musk like florals. The palate is all fruit salad tang and flavour with balanced acidity, encouraging a lingering presence. Best with: Salt and pepper squid.
