Reviews and Ratings

Jane Staples - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

A Sauv Blanc from S Australia with bright gooseberry & grassy notes on the nose. Very grassy palate with tart lemon, gooseberry and tropical fruit. Extra-dry, crisp mouthfeel with long gooseberry finish.
Tasted July 2016
Bright Young Things (2015) is a cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc derived from grapes grown Australian white wine are grown in various cool climate pockets across South Australia. The wine is fragrant with light tropical fruit notes and edgy, if not mouth watering, with fresh green herbs and lime finish. The Honeskeeth family has been making wine for three generations. As mentioned on the wine's back label: "Four children. Two dogs, two cats and four chooks (Aussie slang for chickens). One big mortgage." - Community Wine Review
