Our Sauvignon Blanc ‘Petraea’ is named for the species of oak used in French wine barrels. For over a decade Nepenthe has been a leader in Sauvignon Blanc in Australia. We continuously look to innovate and improve our wines and the Petraea represents the next step in Sauvignon Blanc for us. The wine is matured in large format French oak creating a style that is rich, powerful and textured. Petraea is a wine for food, a wine for special occasions, its Sauvignon Blanc with a difference.

Expert Reviews

The wine spent 6 months in a 2500l French cask, sufficient to make 275 dozen. It's a pity there isn't more, for this is a really attractive and complex wine; there is an intense mix of citrus (grapefruit and lemon) flavours on the one hand and tropical fruits (notably passionfruit and gooseberry) on the other; the oak provides texture rather than flavour, and the length of the palate reflects this.Rating 94 -James Halliday, 28 July 2014.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

A subtle, complex bouquet of passion fruit and gooseberry with toasted oak characters from oak aging and hints of roasted capsicum.

Palate

The palate if the Petraea is characterised by texture, complexity and length. Tropical flavours mix with fresh, grassy characters which are complemented by a generous creamy palate weight and a good acid backbone.

Cellaring

3-5 years.

Food Pairing

Enjoy the Petraea with oily fish such as Salmon or tuna, rich chicken dishes and Sushi. It will also match well to lighter cheese such as fresh mozzarella, haloumi and fetta.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

In 1994, the Tweddell family purchased a premium property in the sub-region of Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills.  The property was carefully selected and planted to 24 hectares of vines with the intent of producing premium wine.  Proven varieties such as Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc were planted, as well as interesting varieties such as Zinfandel and Pinot Gris.  In 1996, Nepenthe received approval to build its winery, only the second in the Adelaide hills at the time (the first being Petaluma in 1978).

In the backdrop of the cool heights of the Adelaide Hills, we started producing some soul reposing potions of our own: uncompromising wines of outstanding quality and internationally recognised distinction. Wines that, strangely enough, have been impressing both critics and consumers with their varietal faithfulness and subtle Adelaide Hills nuances.

From the beginning, our wines have received positive review from the press and numerous medals on the show circuit.In the first few vintages, Nepenthe wines featured in James Halliday’s Top 100, The UK Times Top 100, The Advertiser Top 100, The International Wine Challenge as well as many other feature media articles.

The success of the wines is evident in the market place.  Currently,  Nepenthe sell nationally and our wines are exported to the United Kingdom, USA, Japan, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Canada, Switzerland, Holland, Sweden, Denmark and Croatia. In all these markets the press and public have warmly received Nepenthe wines.

Due to this demand, in 1997 Nepenthe acquired a property in Charleston within the Adelaide Hills and has planted a further 43 hectares of vineyard. Then in 2002 a 25 hectare vineyard was acquired in Balhannah (where our cellar door is located), and in 2005 Nepenthe acquired its latest vineyard, 38 hectares in Hahndorf, with room for further expansion.

Nepenthe also sources fruit from a variety of vineyards throughout the hills. Most fruit Nepenthe receives is managed by Nepenthe Viticulture, part of the Nepenthe Group. This company ensures that Nepenthe only receives the highest quality fruit, ensuring strict control of the grapes that make our award winning wines.
