From 1 acre of Savagnin grapes planted in our red clay soils at Red Hill South. Originally planted as Albariño, it was eventually identified, via DNA testing, to be Savagnin – seemingly, a clerical error had caused the initial confusion upon its importation into Australia. Savagnin is today best known as the signature grape of Jura in eastern France. It appears that our version of the variety is sourced from Spanish cuttings. In any event, we have taken the fruit and developed a style that we think best suits its new home in Red Hill.
Bright citrus and florals, meshed with stone fruit and slate together with sea-spray and a pepper twist. A beautifully balanced wine encompassing fruit weight, palate structure, texture and rounded acidity. It’s rich but refreshing.
