Sauvignon Blanc Victoria
Sauvignon Blanc as a sparkling wine is relatively unknown outside France's Loire Valley. It is only to be expected of the Four Sisters that they take up the lead and introduce this stylish, post modern drink to Australian palates. Known for their exquisite luncheon whites and celebratory sparklers, Four Sisters love nothing more than getting together with the girls over a bottle of good Sauvignon Blanc and glass or two of chilled fizz. They've combined the two into a single, gorgeous drink, just brimming with smart effervescence and elegant flavours.
Sauvignon Blanc is predominantly sourced from vineyards across central Victoria, including parcels from high altitude, cool climate sites in the Strathbogie Ranges. Soil types vary from sandy loam with some clay content through to very sandy soils on the banks of the Goulburn. Fruit is picked and crushed throughout the cool of night to ensure retention of varietal characters and preservation of fresh flavour. After crushing and pressing, juices are settled at 0C to 2C. A relatively aromatic yeast strain is used for inoculation, cool fermented over a period of two to three weeks. Bubbles are added at the very last stage, an important step to ensure the wine retains its fresh and aromatic qualities. Alcohol 12.0%
Golden straw colour with a persisitent bead. Fresh, vibrant and completely enticing, this luxurious sparkling wine shines with aromas of passionfruit, pineapple and a hint of green apple. The palate is clean and refreshing with a floral citrus hint before a long, lingering finish. It's pretty and enticing, the delicate flavours will steal your heart and have you hooked for life! A beautiful match with char grilled seafood, ripe strawberries or sashimi. The Four Sisters hope you enjoy.
