Grape: Sauvignon Blanc
Region: Adelaide Hills
The grapes for Cape Barren whites are sourced from Adelaide Hills vineyards grown above 400m from sea level. Here the temperatures drop dramatically, especially at night, and the soils can be demanding and unforgiving, leading to smaller, more intensely flavoured fruit. The region is a veritable maze of valleys and glens, with a criss-cross of slopes which offer every conceivable aspect and micro-climate variation.
