Eyes

Vibrant pale green.

Nose

Tropical fruit aromas mingle with tell tale varietal herbs & minerals.

Mouth

The honeydew melon & kiwi fruit flavours integrate with some mid palate creaminess & a firm acid note, which persists throughout this wine until the balanced finish. Overall a crisp, fruity dry white.

Winemaking Notes

Sauvignon Blanc is regarded as one of the world’s great white wine varieties & is capable of many different expressions depending on the region & climate in which it is grown. The cool climate Pyrenees district of Victoria can produce distinctive wines with this variety & the 2018 Blue Pyrenees Sauvignon Blanc is a great example. The 2017/18 growing season was mild throughout with good winter rain followed by a very cool spring, then a warm summer & hot, dry autumn. The Sauvignon Blanc vines appreciated the disease free conditions & some summer irrigation. The resultant fruit showed plenty of clean varietal flavours. Cool fermentation with a specially selected yeast strain plus 6 months yeast stirring in tank post fermentation have added depth to the array of flavours on offer. The inspiration for this style is unashamedly Sancerre in France.
