The Winecroft featured white wine for August is the 2020 Smith + Shaw Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc. This wine has become known as a benchmark for Australian Sauvignon Blanc.

The vineyards are farmed sustainably to promote the best possible soil and vine health and the grapes are harvested by hand.
Pale lemon in colour. On the nose, this wine has a vibrant pink grapefruit character along with green apple and floral nuances. It has nice mid-palate weight and texture with a fine acidity. Bright and aromatic.
