Ingram Road Sauvignon Blanc fruit is grown in three separate sections of the vineyard. Two sections are at the bottom of the hills and enjoy cool, slightly moist growing conditions. These growing conditions allow the fruit to ripen very slowly, maintaining the fruits natural acidity levels and string grassy flavours.
2018 Sauvignon Blanc “94 points + Special Value”
“Selectiv’ harvest, crushed, and free-run juice. This has better varietal fruit expression than the majority of Yarra Valley sauvignon blancs. A convincing blend of tropical fruits, Meyer lemon and snowpea are as well balanced as they are long. Unbeatable value at this price.”
James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion ’20
The remaining section is a small planting on top of the hill, exposed to the full summer sun which results in the development of a flavour structure that is less acidic and more tropical (almost sweet) fruit flavours.
By combining the fruit from the different areas (the best of both worlds) results in a wine that has a firm clean grassy nose and back palate with sweet, tropical nuances on the mid palate. A great wine for any occasion, but especially good for those summer outings.
