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.
