Sauvignon Blanc Yarra Valley Victoria
Redbox of Nillumbik are amongst the closest Yarra Valley wineries to Melbourne. The growers and winemaking team here know their vintages intimately and retain access to some of the finest Sauvignon Blanc found anywhere in Victoria. Undulating slopes and a myriad of aspects create a pallette of terroirs and mesoclimes from which to make personable wines. It is ultimately a team effort between growers and winemaker to construct the essential Yarra Valley Sauvignon Blanc. The quality of fruit grown in the vineyard is superb, the finished wine is even better.
Innovative approaches to viticulture and vinification afford the Redbox winemaking team access to parcels of the finest Yarra Valley fruit and provide the opportunity to fashion some wonderfully unique styles. Spring is the most exciting period in the year for the Redbox vineyard, as the vines are in their most prolific state. The entire Yarra Valley is dressed in brilliant hues of green, the vines have flowered, and bunches are forming. Throughout spring and the early summer, cutting the grass, eliminating weeds, and in general, grooming the vineyard is a full time job. The Sauvignon Blanc grapes are treated to the most gentle handling techniques throughout a cool temperature controlled fermentation.
A pale citrus hue. Redbox leaps from the glass with fresh aromas of passionfruit and gooseberry. The palate is loaded with fruit, finishing vitally clean and dry on a note of well balanced acidity. Drink while young and enjoy alongside greek salad or barramundi.
