What the Experts Say

Adelaide Hills shows potential to be the ‘Brave New Face Of Sauvignon Blanc’ so it’s good to see Golding having a crack at benchmarking Sauvignon Blanc in the region with his yardstick run of wines The Local, The Tourist and The Leap which showcase Adelaide Hills, Marlborough and a blend. Innovative thinking. Onya.

However, this wine, The Local, in isolation, is a disappointment. With Golding’s focus on Sauv Blanc I just expected more. Aromatically the wine is resiny with a slap of VA overriding the citrus and tropicals that take a back seat. The palate is short with a kind of waxy texture dominating the proceedings, and in terms of varietal distinction, well, if you gave me this wine blind and asked me what is it I probably would stumble.

Though there are suggestions as to varietal character they are muted by peripheral distractions, oddities in the wine (lack of balance, green acidity, muted flavour profile, dilution of flavour), and nothing really defines it. In essence, there is no hook or excitement. I think you could drink this easily, but its not shouting out the good stuff or potential that I reckon is there from Golding. Kudos is due for its neat price point and for refreshment factor. That is high. You won’t have a bad day with this wine…

85/100 - Mike Bennie, The Wine Front

Our Notes

“The Local”, this one’s called, and whether that’s meant to evoke a venue or a person it’d better evoke a chatty one - from the white-floral nose to the zesty and unexpectedly full-throated body where notes of pineapple and cucumber join the expected gooseberry and the refreshing crisp finish, this isn’t a shy wine. Beautiful pale colour, too.

Winemakers Comments

This wine has a delicate perfume of green apple, lime and passion fruit while on the palate you will find generous notes of crunchy snow pea shoots and lifted tropical fruit flavours. It lingers on the palate and ends with a refreshing dry and chalky finish.

About the Winemaker

Though the Golding family have been active in the world of wine in various capacities for three generations now, it wasn't until 2002 that the Golding Wines brand was launching. Based out of a sandstone cellar door in the Adelaide Hills, the family's deep knowledge of their craft is reflected in the choice to plant a few often-overlooked varietals, dornfelder and savagnin among them.

Sav Blanc?

Has all the characteristics of a Riesling! Minerals, dry and acidic.
Needs to be drunk at room temperature to appreciate the citrus notes at the end. Don't drink it too cold.

Very satisfying

Purchased based upon it's win in Germany. It's a wonderful sauv blanc for an afternoon with a few dips and friends. Not a patch on Cloudy Bay, equals Dog Point and Craggy Range, better than Phillip Shaw or Shaw&Smith. I'll buy again as it's great to have an Australian Sauv blanc in the house not ruined by the addition of semillion.

Great gift idea!

Got a bottle of Verve personalised and it was a great surprise. Can’t comment on the taste because she won’t open it. Lol
