A Growers Touch, Sauvignon Blanc
Availability: 98 in stock
A fresh and herbaceous Sauvignon, made from grapes grown by Pat Calabria as part of the Growers Touch range. Expect strong flavours of gooseberry, basil, passionfruit and bell pepper, with linear undertones of white grapefruit.
Every bottle of the A Growers Touch range features the individual farmers whose expertise has gone into making these stunning wines.
The range encompasses traditional varieties of New South Wales, a departure in style for winery Mino & Co Wines, whose focus lies on growing Italian grapes in Australia. The grapes for A Growers Touch are all grown locally in the Riverina, by farmers the winery has worked with for over two decades. It is these farmers that the range pays homage to, showcasing local fruit, and placing emphasis on the importance of ‘terroir’.
Each variety is sourced from just one grower, and images of both the fruit, and the hands of this grower, adorn the labels of the wines. After all, without their knowledge, skill, and dedication, the quality of the range would not be possible.

New South Wales is an Australian wine powerhouse, accounting for almost a third of Australia’s output. The state has 16 wine regions, resulting in a huge amount of diversity in the terroir and climate and allowing for a range of varieties to be grown, each with their own distinctive trademark flavours. Although NSW is Australia’s second largest wine producing state, it’s also the most populated state, resulting in more wine being consumed than produced.

New South Wales Wines – White Wine
If you’re seeking a stunning white wine, that search may just end here. With over half of the wine produced in NSW being white grape varieties, it would be hard not to find something palate pleasing. The most famed variety is Sémillon, with a particular focus on produce from the Hunter Valley – the country’s oldest continuous wine region and home to over 150 premium wine producers. An honourable mention goes out to the Rieslings and Chardonnays that flow from the state’s regions.
Speaking of Chardonnay, not only was NSW the state where the first Australian Chardonnay was planted, it’s also the country’s oldest wine region. The grapes were brought over on the first fleet to arrive in the country and planted in Sydney Cove in 1788. Since then, the number of wineries has exploded to over 485, boasting over 330 cellar doors and over 40,000 hectares under vine.
