Our Sauvignon Blanc is bursting with passionfruit and honeydew-melon characters with elegantly balanced freshness.  

Sourced from cool-climate Tasmanian vineyards this wine is vibrant, expressive and naturally lighter for year-long enjoyment.

Perfect for sharing with great friends in the sunshine.

The wine is approximately 30% lighter in alcohol than the Brown Brothers 1889 Sauvignon Blanc.

Critics’ tasting notes

  1. “The feather motif on the label gives a light as-a-feather impression. It’s definitely in the tangy sauvignon blanc vicinity and boasts quite a fruit punch considering it’s just 9% alcohol. Grassy, green apple, gunflint. Interestingly, the herbaceousness present on the nose is overtaken by a lemon sherbet tang on the palate. Pretty zippy.”
