Tasting notes
Easy drinking and delightfully fresh. Fruity aromas of melon and guava lead to a clean fresh palate with delicious apple and guava flavours.
Viticultural notes
The fruit for our 2017 co-inoculated Sauvignon Blanc was grown at selected vineyards in the Ballandean district
of the Granite Belt.The Granite Belt is situated on the Great Dividing Range 850m above sea level and 95km inland from the coast. The Winters are cold and frosty and Summers warm producing a continental climate. Most of the region’s rainfall comes in the growing season feeding the buds and shoots. The soil is largely composed of granite, somewhat on the acidic side and is very free draining.
Winemaking notes
Traditionally one strain of commercial yeast is added to the juice to enable fermentation.  In a co-inoculatedwine, two different but complimentary strains of yeast are added (QA23 and Vin 7).  This practice is based on studies conducted by The Australian Wine Research Institute.  The studies showed ‘co-inoculated fermentations resulted in Sauvignon Blanc wines with a significantly modified chemical aroma profile and a potentially enhanced aroma profile, relative to single yeast ferments and blended wines.’ Based on this research we co-inoculated our 2016 Sauvignon Blanc with wonderful results.
