“93 points + Special Value”

“Aromas of fresh-picked and finely chopped herbs, plus some stone fruit and nectarine.”
James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020

 

The Longboard Sauvignon Blanc is a crisp, fresh wine. With balanced and zesty citrus and gooseberry notes, this is a vivid and precise wine.  There is an underlying lemon/lime freshness, which has been preserved through a cool fermentation in stainless steel.

What does all that mean?  It means it’s zingy, fruity, fresh and delicious!

This wine is suitable for vegans.

BACKGROUND

Planted beside the iconic Great Ocean Road and a short stroll from the Bellbrae Estate Cellar Door, their Sauvignon Blanc is very much a part of the endless summers along the Surf Coast.  Planted in 1999, these vines are well established and over-deliver every year with delicious tropical fruits, crisp acidity and a long finish that’s pumping all summer.  Hand-picked and lovingly crafted in a true Australian style.  Softly whole bunch pressed to extract the premium aromas and flavours, then bottled early in the year to capture all these characters, so that it can be enjoyed by all.  There’s only one hectare of Sauvignon Blanc and it’s hardly a local secret, so grab some while you can!

Reviews & Awards

“93 points + Special Value”

“Aromas of fresh-picked and finely chopped herbs, plus some stone fruit and nectarine.”
James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020

“(…).  A smart wine, with greater depth of flavour than usually found at this price level…”

“Floral, nasturtium-like aromas with a waft of sulfides, the palate intense and powerful, with penetrating flavour and a lingering aftertaste. A smart wine, with greater depth of flavour than usually found at this price level.  There’s a touch of passionfruit in the centre and a faint suggestion of the barrel. A very good wine.”
Huon Hooke, The Real Review, April 2020

 

Bellbrae Estate

“Best Wineries of the Regions” + “5 black stars”

“The Surf Coast area of Geelong enjoys a slightly milder climate overall than other areas of the Geelong viticultural region. Being so close to Bass Strait, Bellbrae Estate experiences a maritime influence that reduces the risk of frost in spring and provides more even temperature ranges during summer – ideal growing conditions for producing elegant wines that retain their natural acidity.”
Halliday Wine Companion 2021
