Nepenthe

 

Petraea Sauvignon Blanc

Pinnacle range

Tropical flavours and grassy characters are complemented by a generous creamy palate weight and a good acid backbone.

Our Sauvignon Blanc ‘Petraea’ is named for the species of oak used in French wine barrels. For over a decade Nepenthe has been a leader in Sauvignon Blanc in Australia.

We continuously look to innovate and improve our wines and the Petraea represents the next step in Sauvignon Blanc for us. The wine is matured in large format French oak creating a style that is rich, powerful and textured. Petraea is a wine for food, a wine for special occasions, its Sauvignon Blanc with a difference.

“Nepenthe’s foray into oak fermented Sauvignon is more about texture, mouth feel and minerality than oak flavour, drawing its vibrant, crunchy citrus and kiwi fruit flavours
out long on the finish.” – Tyson Stelzer, August 2011
