Wine Colour
On release the wine is a very pale straw colour with a slight green tinge to the edges.

Wine Bouquet
It has intense lifted aromas of cut grass, lychee and citrus along with a hint of dried herbs.

Wine Palate
The Margaret River component contributes intensely concentrated flavours of asparagus and grapefruit along subtle grassy overtones that are typical of this region. The Adelaide Hills parcel delivers mid palate fleshiness along with enticing tropical characters of passionfruit, melon and guava. There is a subtle creaminess to the mid-palate and the wine has a pleasingly chalky acid backbone and finishes with great persistence.

Cellaring Potential
Crafted for immediate enjoyment but will reward careful cellaring to 2014.

    Peter Chapman, Fraser Coast Chronicle, November 2011


    Wakefield have used grapes from the Margaret River and the Adelaide Hills to produce this classy drop. Typical gooseberry, green apple and grassy overtones with enticing tropical fruit and passion fruit flavours. The only question you will ask is if you have another cold one of these in the fridge.

    Chris Plummer, Australian Wine Journal, December 2011


    Intensely grassy and vegetal and altogether reflecting the stronger hand of its Margaret River component, this 2011 savvy also reveals softer scents of poached pears and passionfruit, as it unloads a fragrance with enough intensity to cut through the open-air odours of summertime outdoor drinking. Drink to 2012.

    Jaraman Sauvignon Blanc 2011

    Kerry Skinner, Illawarra Mercury, December 2011

    Grape Expectations
    The idea behind the Jaraman label is to blend fruit from two different regions, in this case Western Australia's Margaret River and the Adelaide Hills. It works a treat here because both regions are known for the quality of their 'savvys'. You'll find aromatic passionfruit, citrus and tropical fruit on the nose and palate, freshly cut grass and herbaceous characters, zippy acidity and a crisp finish. Drink with a seafood platter.

    A mix of Margaret River and Adelaide Hills fruit, with classic sauvignon aromatics, touches of tropical fruits and trademark grassy, citrus notes. It also boasts a flavourful palate and is engagingly refreshing.

    This pale straw-coloured white has intense lifted aromas of cut grass, lychee and citrus, along with a hint of dried herbs. With fruit sourced from the Margaret River and Adelaide Hills wine regions, it has a combined mid-palate that features a lovely chalky acid backbone and persistent finish.

    Graeme Phillips, Sunday Tasmanian, September 2012


    Very pale straw colour, intensely aromatic and flavoured with attractive initial hits of passionfruit, lime and herbal notes plus sauv blanc's typical spikiness before quickly fading to a rather dull, hard finish.
