About: Sourced from our high altitude site in the cool Tumbarumba region of NSW; one of the most significant emerging regions in Australia that’s perfectly suited to this variety. This wine celebrates its regionality and demonstrates Tumbarumba’s potential as one of Australia’s key regions for Sauvignon Blanc.
Viticulture: F4V6 (Marlborough’s dominate clone) was grafted onto 20 year old Chardonnay vines in 2011. This clone has moderate yields and bunch size, and produces pronounced aromatic and tropical varietal character.
Wine making: 100% free-run juice, slow cool fermentation to retain natural aromatics and primary fruit flavours.
Tasting Notes: The palate is vibrant and fresh with crisp green apples, limes and melon dominating. There’s a really fine texture, with excellent weight and balance. The finish is seamless and long, with clean crisp acidity.
