Hoggies Estate Wines is set to add two exciting new wines to its range in late October, with the launch of its first ever Moscato and a 2014 Sauvignon Blanc.
The Hoggies 2014 Moscato has been produced from traditional Muscat of Alexandria fruit grown on the Hoggies Estate vineyard at Yelta and boasts a powerfully perfumed fragrant nose with rich sherbert, honey and melon flavours.
The Hoggies 2014 Sauvignon Blanc hails from The Home Block in Coonawarra and displays all the best elements of a New World Sauvignon Blanc: clean fresh citrus tropical fruits harmonising with subtle nectarine and passionfruit flavours.
Both wines are expected to be released by October 25, 2014. Stay tuned for more details.
