Overview

Sauvignon Blanc is regarded as one of the world’s great white wine varieties and is capable of many different expressions depending on the region and climate in which it is grown. The cool climate Pyrenees district of Victoria can produce distinctive wines with this variety and the 2013 Blue Pyrenees Sauvignon Blanc is a great example. The 2012 / 2013 growing season was ideal throughout with winter rain followed by very dry spring, summer and autumn. The Sauvignon Blanc vines appreciated the disease free conditions and some irrigation. The resultant fruit showed plenty of clean varietal flavours. Cool fermentation with two specially selected yeast strains plus 3 months yeast stirring in tank post fermentation have added depth to the array of flavours on offer.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Blue Pyrenees - then called Chateau Remy - was established in Western Victoria in 1963 by Remy Martin. Remy Martin was committed to discovering the superb sparkling wine potential of the worlds cool climate wine regions and in fact subsequently became the force behind Champagne Houses Krug and Charles Heidsieck. Blue Pyrenees Estate was among the modern Australian wine industry’s first ventures into cool climate viticulture. Ample amounts of sunshine ensure our grapes ripen to full maturity with the heat moderated by altitude vineyards and southerly ocean winds. The climate is warm enough to give concentration and power, yet cool enough to give vibrancy and elegance, resulting in remarkable wines from Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz, Merlot, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Estate is surrounded by the picturesque blue-hued Pyrenees range named for its beauty and similarity to the Pyrenees mountains bordering France and Spain, though some think this explorer’s memory of what constituted a mountain may have been distorted by his long voyage across the flat seas of the Pacific!

French eccentricity was the hallmark of the Estate and the brand’s creation. In 2002 the Estate was purchased by a group of Australian wine-passionate businessmen. Eccentricity, with a New World twist, is guaranteed to continue with a new, innovative management and winemaking team at Blue Pyrenees Estate.
