Coldstream Hills Sauvignon Blanc Yarra Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Pale straw with a tinge of green. Nose: Clean and fresh with attractive notes of lemon rind, lychee and passionfruit. Underlying nougat barrel fermentation characters are present adding further complexity to the wine. Palate: An elegant style with characters of passionfruit, lychee and lemon citrus. Subtle oak is evident underpinning the wine's texture and length. The palate is finely balanced and finishes with chalky lemon acidity.

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

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. The nose shows fragrant lantana and gooseberry characters with underlying passionfruit and lychee aromas. Minerally, stalky notes are evident and provide additional complexity.
