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 nose is bright and aromatic with lifted passionfruit and guava notes. The up-front palate delivers delightfully refreshing flavours of passionfruit and tropical fruits, liftedby lime zest and citrus. The finish is seamless, with clean crisp acidity.
