Ingram Road Sauvignon Blanc

Ingram Road Sauvignon Blanc 2018

Yarra Valley, Victoria   |    750ml   |    13%
Helens Hill Winemaker Scott McCarthy spent four years working in New Zealand’s Marlborough region making thousands of litres of Sauvignon Blanc for a contract winemaker. Prior to this he spent two vintages in France making Sauvignon Blanc, so it's fair to say that Scott knows what he is doing when it comes to making this popular white wine variety.

The 2018 Ingram Road Sauvignon Blanc is a fresh, fruit-driven example of Yarra Valley Sauvignon Blanc, offering plenty of citrus, stonefruit and tropical passionfruit flavours, with complex texture and a clean, dry finish. An attractive, versatile white wine that will pair well with a range of dishes or can equally be enjoyed by itself.

Yarra Valley
"The fruit is grown in three separate sections of the vineyard. Two sections are at the bottom of the hills and enjoy cool, slightly moist growing conditions. These growing conditions allow the fruit to ripen very slowly, maintaining the fruits natural acidity levels and string grassy flavours. The remaining section is a small planting on top of the hill, exposed to the full summer sun which results in the development of a flavour structure that is less acidic and more tropical (almost sweet) fruit flavours.

By combining the fruit from the different areas (the best of both worlds) results in a wine that has a firm clean grassy nose and back palate with sweet, tropical nuances on the mid palate. A great wine for any occasion, but especially good for those summer outings." - Helens Hill Wines.
