Sauvignon Blanc our latest news
On Saturday 2nd and Sunday 3rd February our Cellar Door opened for the first time in 2013. It was a weekend of celebration as we launched our new 2012 Sauvignon Blanc. A crisp and refreshing aromatic wine partly barrel fermented to add extra complexity on the palate. On the Saturday we will also enjoyed the special guest appearance of Jean-Paul Lamothe who was shucking oysters to go with our latest white wine.
The Cellar Door Launch of the 2010 Reserve Pinot Noir along with the 2010 Single Vineyard Pinot Noir was in December.
2010 was a great vintage for the Yarra Valley. At Wedgetail the wines are well focused in their varietal flavours, with generous body and structure, the single vineyard Pinot Noir is one of the most outstanding wines to date. The vines are definitely coming of age. But let’s talk about our latest Reserve, the 2010 As you’re aware we do not release a Reserve every year, and for 2010 there is only a very small quantity, so don’t hesitate if you’re a fan. It is a very special wine, sublime in it’s refinement. It has rested in 50% new French oak for 18 months before bottling. If you’re familiar with Burgundy think Volnay at it’s best. This is aromatically elegant with attractive red berry, liquorice, roses and violets. Moving into a subtle pallet of intense mouthfill, spice and a savoury finish. A Pinot Noir of Charm and Grace.
The Reserve Pinot Noir 6 pack is $348.00 freight free, if you’re unable to join us at Cellar Door please click here to use the Launch of 2010 Reserve order form or give Guy a call.
Magic occurs in bottles like it does around people. In this case naturally forming bubbles gather in a bottle of chardonnay forming a bunch of grapes, the molecular expression was stronger that the physical composition.
