Colour: Pale yellow, sunshine in a glass!
Scents: Green apple, melon and a fresh zesty tang.
Taste: Tangy and very broad in scope, the mineral undertones of this wine make it quite intense on the tongue. Apple and lemon aftertaste, quite dry.
Thoughts: Yet another vineyard that hails from the Adelaide Hills in South Australia, this wine is incredibly drinkable and is ready right now – no need to let it sit for another year or two. It is representative of the majority of Sauv-Blancs coming out of the Adelaide Hills region – stronger in flavour than the New Zealand equivalents, but without going too close to the in-your-face intensity of a typical Chardonnay. The Delirium brand is actually one arm of the Nova Vita Wines company, also responsible for Mad Russian and Firebird, so these folk clearly know their stuff!
