Shaw Family Vintners Sauvignon Blanc, Cordelia is said to mean “daughter of the sea”. Often associated with brilliance and awe, legend has it that proud Celtic sailors would often give this name to their daughters as a mark of their joy and love. We like it for two reasons – it’s a nice name for one, but perhaps more importantly, it is a perfect match for our Cordelia Sauvignon Blanc. It’s a stunning wine, beautifully balanced to accompany many foods, particularly the fruits of our seas.
We harvest our Sauvignon Blanc in the middle of the night and crush while the grapes are still chilled from the cool Adelaide Hills night air. It means we retain piercingly fresh and herbaceous aromas with a generous dash of passionfruit, a racy green apple palate laced with tropical fruit and leaving you with a zesty lime finish. A tribute indeed to the daughters of the sea.
