It is with great excitement that today we release our much awaited vintage of the Passel Estate 2019 Sauvignon Blanc having won a GOLD medal in the recent 2021 International Wine Challenge.
The International Wine Challenge is recognised by many as one of the world’s most rigorous, impartial and influential annual wine competitions. With 95 points and a GOLD medal, this is our most anticipated new vintage release yet. It is also incredible to note that Passel Estate’s Sauvignon Blanc was the only Australian wine of this variety to win a gold medal.
GOLD, 2021 International Wine Challenge
“Flinty nose with waxy greengage fruit and lime notes. Rich and full, textured yet fine.”
94 Points, Halliday Wine Companion ‘Top Value Selections’ 2021
“The nose has a really attractive corporeal funk to it – reminiscent of skin after an ocean swim. The palate is delicate and fine, the oaked component providing a plush bed of texture on which the delicate fruit lingers. Complex layers of texture elevate this to serious.”
It might not yet feel like it, but with the winter solstice later this month we know it won’t be long at all until spring – and until then, with its partial fermentation in new French oak barrels, our elegant 2019 Passel Estate Sauvignon Blanc is the perfect ‘winter white’.
