Vintage Conditions

The 2016 growing season got underway like a shot after Rutherglen had received average winter rainfall, whilst most of the rest of Victoria received very little rain. Budburst was normal, however October was 6°C above average and the vines grew strongly after its perfect start.
The vines kept being ahead of the average schedule with a fine, dry October and November. From then on, summer was slightly above average temperatures, but dry with perfect ripening conditions. Due to the faster than normal ripening, vintage started slightly early but finished four weeks earlier than average - it was a very compressed vintage. There were constant warm days, without too many days over 40°C. In summary, the season was ideal for growing grapes and the outcome is an above average year in Rutherglen for most varieties. The reds in particular look strong.

Tasting Notes

Our white is made from Sauvignon Blanc grapes, a variety which is more commonly known for being grown in cooler climates.
Our version of this white is fresh and herbaceous while having a mouth filling mid-palate.
It supplies the typical Sauvignon Blanc varietal cut grass and gooseberry with tropical fruit aromas.
The palate is fresh and crisp as you would expect from Sauvignon Blanc, yet has a slightly buttery mouth-filling mid-palate that gives the pronounced freshness and zestiness a supported textural backbone.
A perfect white for any occasion.

Winemaking

We have three different Sauvignon Blanc clones planted in the vineyard. The grapes were picked in February to capture the maximum amount of fresh herbaceous flavours, and were harvested in the cool of the night and handled gently with non-oxidative winemaking techniques and cool temperatures at every stage. The wine was 100% fermented in stainless steel tanks to ensure it has maintained all of its varietal freshness, crispness and great acidity.
