Snow Road Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc 2013

The Wine
This classic blend of Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc combines the peach and stone fruit flavours of the Chardonnay with fresh vibrant lime and herbaceous fruit flavours of the Sauvignon Blanc. The palate is soft with long lingering crisp finish. This style is intended to be consumed as an accompaniment to a light meal or just chilled on its own.

Winemaking
Both varieties were harvested in the cool of the night and pressed immediately to minimize the extraction of phenolics and oxidation of the juice. The wine was fermented cold at 10 degrees C, with the finished wine being clarified as soon as the primary fermentation was complete. This enabled us to retain the fresh fruit flavours.

Viticulture
The fruit for the Snow Road label is sourced from a number of selected premium vineyards in the King Valley. The warm sunny days and cold mountain air that funnels down during the night provides the cool climate ripening conditions for the grapes that are harvested for the Snow Road label. The Sauvignon Blanc was harvested early. The Chardonnay was allowed to ripen to 13.5 Beaume so to obtain the peachy stone fruit flavours.
