Background

"Longview experienced late Autumn and early winter rainfalls in the lead up to 2020. Our dams filled rapidly in early Winter and soil moistures were ideal. With one of the hottest Decembers on record, maintaining healthy canopies with adequate soil moisture was challenging, but Longview handled the conditions well. Significant fire events devastated large swathes of vineyard in parts of the Northern Adelaide Hills. Longview was spared this natural disaster and 50 mm of rain at the end January and early February brought welcome relief. From then on, temperatures cooled right down, making ripening and harvesting conditions nearly perfect."

Tasting Note

"An Adelaide Hills classic; ‘Whippet’ Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of passionfruit, guava, mangosteen, leafy fresh cut grass and herbs, honeysuckle, and lemon. The palate is whip smart and racy – like the hound after which it is named - and displays refreshing, green bean and nettle characters and finishes with incredible mouth-watering acidity."
