Sauvignon Blanc (Killer White) - Peter Teakle Wines

Tax included.

The hero of the Teakle whites, this is a delicious drop with notes of passionfruit and citrus.


The 2023 Killer White Sauvignon Blanc is incredibly aromatic and varietal.  Aromas of freshly cut grass, peas and asparagus.  The palate has a spectrum of tropical fruits, with passionfruit, apple and citrus notes.  The wine is fermented ‘dry’ so there is no residual sugar, but the apparent “sweetness” comes purely from the primary fruit and natural flavour.  This wine is ready to drink as a young wine, but will remain fresh and bright with short term cellaring. Vegan friendly


The 2023 Sauvignon Blanc was machine harvested in the early hours of 16th March.  The fruit was vinified in our onsite state of the art winery, which was built in 2019 and was awarded the Best Building Excellence Award in the $2-5 million category at The Master Builders SA Awards.

Picking grapes in the early hours of the morning ensures they are delivered cold and fresh to the winery which naturally helps preservation from oxidation. The fruit was crushed and destemmed into a membrane bag press for de juicing. 

The juice was then transferred to a stainless steel tank to cold settle for 8 days before being racked off of grape ‘solids’, warmed, inoculated with neutral dry wine yeast and fermentation commenced. Fermentation lasted 14 days. The wine was once again settled,  stabilised, clarified and filtered before being bottled in June 2023.


Situated on the Teakle property in Port Lincoln, 2 kilometres from the foreshore, with 150 meters elevation. The soils are a rich combination of sandy loam topsoil overlying a friable red-brown clay loam subsoil. The moderately warm summer temperatures and maritime breeze allow perfect ripening conditions in the vineyard. The long sunshine hour days encourage even ripening of the grapes, while the gentle breeze helps cool the bunches, retaining the beautiful natural acidity.  The Sauvignon Blanc vines were planted in the 1980’s and are cane pruned.
