Mike Press Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc 2017
Grower producers Mike and Judy Press planted their Kenton Valley vineyards in 1998, on 85 acres of land in the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills, at an altitude of 500m above sea level. They planted Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Cuttings were sourced from a revered original 100-year-old Eden Valley block.
Mike has more than 40 years experience. He worked with Max Shubert (ex chief winemaker at Penfolds and co-creator of Grange Hermitage Bin 95), was chief winemaker at Seppelts then Mildara Bass.
Both their Merlot and Sauvignon Blanc made James Hallidays Top 100 2015. The Adelaide Advertiser wrote, “Mike Press astounds with his portfolio of extraordinary wines”.
Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc
"The awesome power and intensity of this wine will catch many by surprise; the bouquet is correct and varietal, but by the time it reaches the mid-palate you can sense the express train loaded with citrus, green pea and sparks of tropical fruits blazing through the finish and cleansing aftertaste of mouthwatering acidity." —James Halliday
