Wishing Clock of the Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2021

Whole bunches from our most distinctive Sauvignon Blanc vineyard, Bill & Vicki Borchardt’s, in the heart of the Adelaide Hills, atop Teakle’s Hill at Woodside were hand selected and picked on the second week of March in the cool of early morning then destemmed in small batches without crushing the fruit followed by gentle pressing.

The free run juice was then fermented in small stainless steel tanks between 11 and 14 degrees Celsius. This Wishing Clock's natural acidity, low pH and alcohol of only 11.5% is light and dry.

This Wishing Clock of the Adelaide Hills was bottled directly without fining with minimal filtration to capture the essence of the vineyard, a looking glass if you will, and is ready to drink immediately. Thanks Vicki and Bill, a wish come true.

This wine is suitable for vegans.

"Plenty of smart, street cred here, worked to what we expect and want to see from Adelaide Hills sauvignon blanc. Exuberant varietal intensity on aroma and taste with lasting herbal, nettle, green apple and citrus running free. Rapier-like acidity certainly makes its presence felt, finishing brisk and dry."

  • The Real Review, Huon Hooke - 90 Points
"Pale, almost water-clear colour. Fragrant aromas of lemon and herbs and hints of other citrus fruits, the palate tight and tense, very dry and savoury, with crisp acidity and a distinctly chalky mouth-feel. I’d give it a few more months to settle and it will be even better."
