Sauvignon Blanc

Altitude range

An intense yet elegant wine with great depth of flavour that is both lifted and zesty.

 Nepenthe has been producing Sauvignon Blanc since its inaugural vintage in 1997. Throughout the ensuing vintages the Nepenthe has gained recognition as a benchmark of cool climate Australian style Sauvignon Blanc within the industry.


The grapes are sourced from multiple vineyards throughout the Adelaide Hills to ensure depth and complexity. After being harvested in the cool of the night, the parcels were pressed, clarified and blended to create a wine displaying vibrant fruit flavour and intensity that is both lifted and zesty with a persistent, long finish.

“A real drive and interest in this wine, moving away from one dimensional Sauvignon to impart texture and complexity.”
