2018 Sang de Pigeon Blanc

2018 Sang de Pigeon Blanc

The Stonegarden vineyard in Springton was established in the 1860’s by Oscar Benno Seppelt. 70 years previous, during the Hamilton family’s tenure, a block was co-planted under French winemaker Maurice Ou to an eclectic mix of aromatic whites including Muscat Blanc à Petits Grains red and white, Crouchen, Riesling and Verdelho, peppered with some old vine Grenache and Mataro from the 1860’s and a number of unidentified white varieties, a genuine field blend!

Hand-picked, cold-soaked, fermented, barrel matured for 8 months and blended with 15% skins-fermented Sauvignon Blanc from Lenswood. Racy, zesty and intensely aromatic. Apple orchard. Elderflower. Orange blossom. Blackcurrant. Powder-dry finish.

1980 bottles produced.
