Coldstream Hills Sauvignon Blanc Yarra Valley 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Pale straw with a green tint. The nose shows fragrant gooseberry characters with underlying passionfruit and lychee aromas. Minerally, stalky notes are evident and provide additional complexity. The 2008 Coldstream Hills Sauvignon Blanc is a fine and elegant style with zesty lemon acidity and length. Varietal characters of passionfruit pulp and gooseberry dominate with hints of lemon peel in the background.

Since its first vintage in 1985, Coldstream Hills has grown to be one of the Australia’s leading small wineries, with a reputation for producing an outstanding range of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot Varietal and Reserve wines. Situated in the cool and beautiful Yarra Valley, about one hour’s drive east of Melbourne, its steep, close-planted vineyards have become a signature of the region. Coldstream Hills maintains its small winery essence with most of the wine literally being “hand made”. The fruit is hand pruned and partially hand picked; the wine is made mainly using small open fermenters (of three to four tonnes capacity for the red wines, while the whites are principally barrel fermented). Winemaking techniques and philosophies haven’t changed with the growth in production either; all designed to produce elegant wines with a long finish. Read less
