Viticulturist Notes
The fruit was crafted from 70% Marsanne grapes and 30% Viognier grapes, sourced from our Goulburn Valley vineyards in Central Victoria. The individual varieties were harvested separately over a three week period in March. Picking and crushing was completed during the cool of the night to maintain freshness. Fermentation at cool temperatures for 7 days in stainless steel fermenters has helped enhance the pure, fresh, clean flavours.
Wine Harvest Notes
Vintage 2017 is best described as a waiting game. The season was very long with fruit slow to ripen and although the urge just to pick it all was there, we had to bide our time until we had optimal flavours and ripeness. Once I made the decision to pick the grapes came in at an orderly pace, although increased yields due to the rain in spring made the juggling game in the winery even more challenging, with tank space at a premium. We made it through our marathon 2017 vintage and are thrilled with the exceptional quality including a number of really extraordinary parcels.
Food Recommendations
This free spirited wine is a heavenly match with modern asian food. She also pairs perfectly with anything from the sea. Alternatively, match with a fresh fruit platter and some handmade cheese to blow your mind!
