If you are looking for a Sauvignon Blanc with a bit of charisma, the Guthrie Wines Little Things will scratch that itch. The Little Things has a little bit of everything: a little time in old oak, a little time on lees, a little extra oomph to the already excellent Adelaide Hills fruit. It feels a little more round and voluminous than the run-of-the-mill Sauvignons from this part of the country, but is classicly varietal all the same. With 91 points from Gary Walsh, this is a top buy for Sauvy fans.
What it Tastes Like
"Seasoning of snow pea and tomato bush, but not overt, ripe grapefruit, gooseberry. It’s smooth and softly spoken, seems to carry a little sweetness to ease the way, and has fine acidity and a little flintiness to the texture. There’s no hard edges or abrasive acidity, and the drinking pleasure is pretty high. All up nice wine." - Gary Walsh (The Wine Front)

This Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from a Cudlee Creek vineyard in the Adelaide Hills. The grapes were hand harvested on a cool morning in mid-March and pressed directly to old French oak puncheons and small tanks for fermentation. The wine was then aged on lees for three months before bottling. The wine show classic Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc aromas of tropical fruits, blackcurrants, spice and lifted herbaceous notes. The palate has delicate flavours of lime citrus, slate and rocket. It relies on its texture and soft acid structure rather than sugar and harsh added acid that far too many Sauvignon Blancs seem to rely on at the moment. The perfect wine to drink around the pool with friends. Equally as suited to spicy Asian cuisine, oysters or salt and pepper squid.

About the Producer
Hugh Guthrie is making some very smart wines from the Adelaide Hills. On one hand he offers excellent value classic styles of Chardonnay, Syrah and the like and on the other he gets a little experimental with some of the new European varieties becoming more and more popular. He delivers on both fronts. Lo-fi winemaking delivering delicious results.
The Adelaide Hills may be the most energised wine region in the country. The sense of exploration and creativity amongst the tribe of talented young winemakers in this region is unparralelled. The Hills has become crucible of Australian wine talent, offering an array of varieties, from classics such as Shiraz, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay, to new varieties like Nebbiolo and Grüner Veltliner for the younger generation to play with. Every vintage brings new colour and complexity to the rich wine, food and produce culture of this cool climate region.
