McLaren Vale isn’t renowned for its white wines but Shingleback did well to combine the Vale fruit with fruit from the cooler Adelaide Hills. While the top wines from Shingleback are very good to great quality that require time in the cellar the entry level stuff is easy to drink now.
Shingleback Haycutters Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2012
This blend of predominately Sauvignon Blanc is all tropical fruit with a hint of lemon grass on the back end. The flavour profile is interesting with the sav taking centre with the Semillon providing a touch of structure. At the moment the taste is full on on the front with the palate thinning out towards the middle. I would enjoy this for the summer open and inviting fun.
