2019 Sang de Pigeon Blanc

2019 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 from the historic Stonegarden vineyard on the 4th of March, 68% fermented on skins and pressed to barrel, all matured for nine months in barrel. Blended with 20% Roussanne from Greenock in the Barossa Valley. Our project Blanc harnesses the exuberant varietal composition of the Stonegarden field blend while bringing the quinine notes and golden hue of skin-contact fermentation
