Reviews

James Halliday Australian Wine Companion
Tasting Note: "Made from grapes grown in the Gomersol and Tanunda areas, with the distinctive Irvine touch from finishing the fermentation in French and American oak barrels perfectly integrating the fruit, oak and tannin flavours. Seductive style pioneered in 1951 by Max Schubert. Carries its alcohol well, likewise its fresh colour."

2009 Simon Lang Sauvignon Blanc 001
Limestone Coast

The fruit for this wine was sourced from cooler areas of the Limestone Coast region, 380 kilometres south east of Adelaide, and fermented in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness.

2006 London International Wine Challenge Red Winemaker of the Year

Tasting Note: An aged style of Sauvignon Blanc, this wine has developed a wonderfully moreish palate with good body weight and a silky smooth texture while retaining a crisp fresh finish. Mild passionfruit aroma and flavour has given way over time to subtle pineapple with some hints of tropical fruit still remaining.

Vintage Report

The 2009 vintage was characterised by generally optimal growing conditions with average growing season temperatures and winter rainfall, minimal frost occurrences and no vine disease pressures, resulting in white wines having excellent flavour profiles at lower alcohol levels.

Tasting Note: "Made from various cool vineyards across the Limestone Coast, with the illusion of some barrel ferment influences (there are none). Certainly has richness."

Our Series Numbers & The Wine Experience

Wine has such an interesting and complex nature, its infinitely subtle variations in aroma, flavour, taste and sensation giving us so much pleasure and enticing us back for more.

A wine's distinctiveness is a function of the interplay of many factors including its unique composition, its evolution over time and the way it is stored.

For this reason, all our wines bear a Dominant Varietal Series Number on the label of each bottle as your assurance that each separate vintage, blend and bottling is individually identified and recognizable.

We hope you enjoy them.

Remember too, wine evolves in the bottle once opened and in the glass once poured, so enjoy the experience as a wine unfolds.

And for all wines, try experimenting a little with both time and temperature, as various wine components; tannins, alcohol, sugars, acids, aroma and flavour compounds and the tactile sensations they engender, become more or less apparent depending on the wine's temperature or the time passed.
