Eyes

Deep green colour.

Nose

Honeysuckle, dried pears & spiced nuts.

Mouth

The subtle pear & apricot fruit flavours, combined with nuts & spices, are reminiscent of packets of mixed dried fruit & nuts used in cake making. The creamy mid palate, with unusually rich fleshy texture for a dry Australian white wine, is finished by crisp natural acidity matched by careful phenolic extraction.

Winemaking Notes

In a regional co-operation the winemakers at Blue Pyrenees, inspired by wines of the Rhone Valley, have combined Viognier from Blue Pyrenees Estate with Marsanne & Roussanne from the Glenlofty Vineyard in the Landsborough Valley. This wine is named Champ Blend Blanc, which roughly translates to Field Blend White, indicating the French/Australian inspiration as well as the combination of fields or vineyards. The Marsanne, Roussanne & the Viognier are all processed separately but include the light pressings where much of the flavour in these varieties hide. The main components were battonaged in stainless steel tanks for six months while the Viognier was fermented & aged in old French barriques, before final blending, a light milk fining & bottling in August 2019.
