Tellurian Toolleen Blanc 2018

Tellurian Blanc 2018

Heathcote, Victoria   |    750ml   |    14%
Located on the western slopes of Mt Camel Range, Tellurian is undoubtedly one of the rising stars of the Heathcote wine region. While well-known for their high quality Shiraz, they're also making some high quality Rhone-inspired white wines.

This 2018 Tellurian Blanc is a blend of some white varieties produced at Tellurian as single variety wines; Marsanne, Fiano & Riesling. This is a fresh, lively yet complex white wine; with the Marsanne providing richer fruit, expressive flavour and rounded texture, whilst the Fiano and Riesling offer fresher, lighter flavours and texture. A superb drinking white wine that will compliment a range of seafood and white meat dishes.

"Aromas of ripe peach and apricot, combine with rockmelon, jasmine and musk scents. Those aromas are also evident in the light to medium bodied palate which has a honey like mouthfeel, and appealing texture, with crisp acidity providing a clean finish." - Tellurian Wines.

Tellurian Wines vineyard is on the western slopes of Mt Camel Range, overlooking the township of Toolleen.

The original Tellurian vineyard was planted in 2003 with 5.6 ha of shiraz vines, with a further 3.6 ha of Shiraz were planted in 2006.

The ancient 500 million year old Cambrian soils of the Toolleen area of the Heathcote region combined with viticultural practices that focus on optimising fruit quality from each vine provide the base building blocks for Tellurain wines.
WINEMAKER NOTES: Pale straw in colour. Aromas of green apple and pear, combine with a hint of herbal, cut grass, perfumed notes. The medium bodied palate has expressive flavours of tropical fruit and nashi pear, with hints of spice, and jasmine. The soft texture and slightly waxy characters combine with clean acidy to provide a fresh finish.

VINEYARD: Riesling picked from of our Tellurian vineyard growing in Cambrian soils formed over 500 million years. Marsanne and Fiano picked from neighbouring Heathcote vineyards on the Colbinabbin side of the Mt Camel range.

VINTAGE: After the cooler conditions of the 2017 season, 2018 saw the return of the warm dry conditions that have been more typical in recent years. Vintage started in early February and went through to mid-March.

WINEMAKING: Individual grape varieties were picked separately and gently whole bunch pressed prior to settling. The majority of the juice was fermented in stainless steel tanks with a smaller portion in older French oak. The wine remained on yeast lees with regular stirring for three months. The final blend comprises Marsanne, Fiano and Riesling.
