2020 Patritti Sauvignon Blanc Adelaide Hills – The Merchant Series showcase premium wine from South Australia’s premier wine regions. The bold labels feature Patritti photographs and stories depicting the lighter moments in Patritti’s history.
Like many migrants, Giovanni Patritti worked various odd jobs to establish himself in his new homeland. Prior to building his own winery, Giovanni owned an ice cream cart, serving day-trippers to the Adelaide Botanic Gardens.
The Adelaide Hills wine region has a reputation for producing some of Australia’s most exciting cool climate wines. With an average elevation around 600 metres the climate is significantly cooler than the neighbouring areas. Cool, dry summers and an autumn ripening period produce a balanced fruit flavour profile and natural acidity.
Very light straw in colour with a green tinge on the hue; the nose is lifted and aromatic with notes of tropical fruits, lychee, passionfruit and mango made more complex with lemongrass, lemons and lime. The palate is super fresh, long and zippy with balanced acidity. Tropical flavours initially fill the mouth, then fresh citrus persists long after the wine is swallowed.
