About

Michael Downer is one of the brightest young winemaking talents in the Adelaide Hills.

His Halfway Black Sauvignon Blanc is a modern, cleverly made version of this Hills staple variety. There’s some time of skins, some barrel work - Michael looking for more complexity than what is usually found in the run-of-the-mill SB.

This keeps its freshness but drags you in with a little edge of wildness. Just another great example of the skills of this rising young star with his classy home grown fruit.

What It Tastes Like

92 points. “Lots of pretty perfume of the variety – passionfruit, green capsicum, cut grass – and just a hint of spiciness to keep things peppy. Zesty palate rolls juicy and brisk, shows a greener spectrum of the variety, finishes with white pepper and lick of mezcal. Really likeable, and isn’t pandering to sweet tooths, instead, showing some more personality potential of the variety.”
