2018 Sauvignon Blanc

The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc comes from grapes picked from our estate grown 35 year old vines.

The consistently warm summer produced a wine with slightly higher alcohol than usual, resulting in a sauvignon blanc with more body, giving it a rich mouth feel, while maintaining its herbaceous flavours.

Vintage Details

Wines from Vintage 2018 are maturing well in barrel. 2018 was a tale of two seasons with some of the most challenging humid weather ever experienced during the growing season (Oct-Dec 2017) followed by exceptionally dry conditions after Christmas. We are very excited with the resulting wines but more on that in good time.

Campbell Mattinson's review of the 2017 Sauvignon blanc

Gembrook Hill turns out such beautiful sauvignon blanc.

It boosts both power and composure but best of all is the wine's honed, stately length. Controlled and long are the best words to describe this wine, it tastes of barley, woodsmoke, herbs, steel and tropical fruit, the net all of
juicy, complex and flavoursome. A certain chalkiness to the finish works here too, as always.
