Overview

What can you do with Yarra Valley sauvignon blanc? We like to really mess with it, so this year we introduced a brand-new Botte and a brand-new Puncheon for a funky, full-solids ferment, and then made sure the rest of the wine was in our crustiest, oldest French oak barriques. Despite this maltreatment, we still recognise sauvignon blanc aromas and flavours - it's the Rocky Balboa of varieties - we throw all our punches and it soaks them up.

So if you like SB, or especially if you don't, you might like what we've created.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Very pale straw green; almost translucent.

Aroma

Fresh and lively aromas of grapefruit rind, nettles, guava and honeysuckle with complexing hints of toast and flint from barrel fermentation. Despite the high proportion of barrel ferment (85%) and use of solids, there is still strong primary fruit drive, wtih grapefruit and lime the dominant flavours, supported by some mid-palate creaminess and refreshing chalky acidity. At release the wine is very tightly woven, and will loosen up considerably with extended bottle ageing.

Food Matching

A fresh goat curd salad with rocket and fennel or perhaps a pasta with fresh peas, dill and smoked salmn tossed through it.
