Sauvignon Blanc

Altitude range

A well-balanced, complex and creamy wine unique in character, classically Nepenthe.

The Adelaide Hills is Australia’s most highly regarded Sauvignon Blanc region, due to its ancient soils and cool yet dry growing season. Widely planted across the region, Sauvignon Blanc thrives in a wide variety of sites, producing genuinely delicious grapes.

Sauvignon Blanc has found a natural home in the high altitude and cool climate of the Adelaide Hills. Nepenthe has been producing Sauvignon Blanc since its inaugural vintage in 1997, throughout the ensuing years and vintages the Nepenthe Sauvignon Blanc has gained recognition as a benchmark within the industry. This reputation was further enhanced with the 2006 receiving gold and the trophy for best Sauvignon Blanc at the Adelaide Hills Wine Show and more recently winning TROPHY & GOLD at the Decanter World Wine Awards 2012.
