Mike Press Sauvignon Blanc 2017 (Adelaide Hills)

Mike Press Sauvignon Blanc 2017 contains layers of tropical fruit exuberance contrast the taut, tense, crunchy acidity that defines this cool, high site in the Adelaide Hills. Loaded with guava, passion fruit and mango, with citrus, tangy finish.

"The vineyard is planted around Mike Press's house, and he makes the wine, delivering unbeatable value. Sub-$20 sauvignon blancs often wobble around the mouth with vague tropical fruits neither seeking nor delivering cause for thought. This has vital cut and thrust to its array of snow pea, gooseberry and guava flavours, the package neatly tied by no-nonsense acidity."
James Halliday 2017 Wine Companion

"Mike Press Sauvignon Blanc, served at a low 11.8% alcohol.

It’s a little more strict than usual; more straight-laced. It’s gooseberried and herbal but there are flashes of florals and a drive of pure passionfruit; almost into apple. Racy and tart but perfumed and inviting. As with last year I suspect it’s been released a little too young, its feet still setting their stance. But I’d reckon you’re onto a pretty decent thing here, at a more than reasonable price."

Situated in the Kenton Valley between Lobethal and Gumerachawith, is the 23 hectares of vines, and in a normal year, grow 300 tonnes of fruit. The altitude is high at 480-500 metres.

Mike is a veteran winemaker, who has been in the business for 40 years. Beginning his career at Penfolds under Max Schubert, then Seppelt, and then Mildara Blass as Chief Winemaker.

In 1998 he planted his vines with the intention and aim of selling grapes to the large wineries, however the timing wasn’t great and Kenton Valley Vineyards came on-stream just as the ‘grape glut’ arrived.

With this, Mike and Judy realised they would have a lot of grapes left over, unless they began making wine for themselves.

The first few vintages were sold as ‘cleanskins’, and quickly sold out every year, building something of a cult following in Adelaide.

The label Mike Press was then born, and has thrived with exceptional value quality wines. The wines frequently excel at shows, especially the local Adelaide Hills Wine Show. Winery Notes
