Southern Highlands Pinot Blanc 2019



The third vintage of a new addition to our Yaraandoo vineyard, this wine is pale straw in colour with hints of green. Citrus and green apple dominate the aromas with subtle chalkiness. These characters flow onto the palate with a fine texture contributed from its 5 months maturing on lees. Crisp acidity gives it length and liveliness.


New Release


Notes From The Winemaker: A drier than normal winter in 2018 meant budburst happened a week earlier than usual. It was an extremely dry growing season which resulted in a lower yield but the smaller bunches had increased flavour concentration which is seen in the wines of this vintage. Added to this was the dry summer across the eastern coastline of NSW, leaving the cool nights to help with a slow ripening period. The fruit was picked early in the cool highlands morning then taken to the winery where it was whole bunch pressed. The juice was settled overnight then racked to stainless steel. The juice underwent a cool ferment for 10 days then it was aged on lees until June. The wine was fined, filtered and bottled in August.
