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." - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
