"The first session of a test match was extra special to me. A chance to pull on the baggy green with ten of my mates and come together as one." - Ricky Ponting
"Fresh, bright and aromatic, a perfect starter for a drink in the sun with friends." - Ben Riggs
The Adelaide Hills is the premier region for Sauvignon Blanc. One of the largest geographical wine regions in Australia its diversity in terms of altitude, climate and soil helps it produce its distinctive cool climate wines.
The Ponting "First Session" is a fresh and floral Sauvignon Blanc with a zesty passionfruit and grapefruit nose, the mid palate is wonderfully textured with citrus pith and a long crisp palate. A perfect starter for a drink in the sun with friends.

"Fabulously expressed on the nose showing green rockmelon, kaffir lime, crunchy apple and nectarine notes, followed by a wonderfully flavoursome palate offering excellent fruit purity and persistency. Upfront and delectably appealing."
