Lost Valley Winery Sauvignon Blanc 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

From our new vineyard in Southern Victoria, this wine takes full advantage of the cool, maritime climate of the Mornington Peninsula to produce the intense aromas and flavours renowned in the region. Far more complex than most due to picking at 2 stages of ripeness and poured at Tetsuya's Restaurant, amongst other fine venues. Matches well to asparagus, goats cheese and tomato tarts and will cellar 5 years plus.

Our Winemaker Excellent wines are not merely born, they are created. By soil, sun, rain and by the experience and skill of the Winemaker. Alex White is that person. Long & widely regarded as one of Australia's leading and most awarded winemakers (not to mention respected International wine judges), he repeatedly transforms the raw excellence of our premium fruit into something sublime and yet uniquely singular. Alex's attention to detail and striving for perfection is such that he involves himself in every strata of Lost Valley's journey from bud burst to bottled wine. The results are thankfully self evident. The Founders The name for Lost Valley Winery came about in a rather innocent fashion. The founders had been researching wine growing areas and sites for quite some time, when one winter's day in 1995 as they were travelling north from Melbourne, they instintively took a left turn, then another left, left again, and a right turn...into the most spectacular valley they'd ever seen - and yes, they were truly lost! As you can see from the images here, the Lost Valley does indeed look like the land that time forgot, one known by the locals as the "Valley of the Thousand Hills". Our Region Mention the words "high country" to an Australian and you'll evoke images of snow-capped mountains, proud brumby's running wild, trout-filled streams and hardy, independent people. What's more, because of the cool to cold climate and rich soils it also guarantees we can all enjoy the premium and singular wines that this region is consistently producing. Lost Valley Wines reflect this spirit of our unique GI Region - that of the "Upper Goulburn" part of the Central Victorian High Country. Read less

This indeed a treat if you are a lover of Sauvignon Blanc wine. Picked at two different ripnesses to ensure complexity and depth of flavours, it offers lifted blossom scents and herbaceous aromas, delivering a dry, crisp, balanced flavour with a hint of lingering spice at the back of the palate and a wonderful Tropical fruit finish. This is an elegant and perfect accompaniment to spicy and/or assertively flavoured fish dishes, as it is to recipes with goat's cheese, fresh tomatoes and asparagus which are often a challenge for wine paring. Bottled using screw-cap closures to maintain top wine quality and purity of flavours, you will also enjoy this wine with Thai cuisine and seafood. With a silver medal to it's name you are certainly going to enjoy this fine example of the varietal wine so order now before it's all gone.
