The Pawn Wine Co’s first ever Vintage of El Desperado was 2011, and will always be known in Australian wine history as the vintage from hell, as many vineyards succumb to the wet summer. For the Pawn, we sacrificed making our full range of wines that year to create a brand new style wine. Although we did not set out to make the El Desperado before that vintage, when you taste this wine, by hell you will be glad we did.
This Sauvignon Blanc is made from grapes sourced from our Adelaide Hills vineyard. It erupts with aromas of lush ripe passion fruit, citrus & stone fruits on the nose. The palate shows moist grapefruits, lime pie and lychees with a long textured finish and a delicate mineral edge.
