2020 Gathering Field Sauvignon Blanc
|Producer||Thousand Candles. Yarra Valley, Vic|
Thousand Candles stretches from the valley floor of the banks of the Yarra to the rolling hills hundreds of metres above sea level. 2017 Young Gun of Wine finalist and Yeasty Boys drummer – Stuart Proud tends the vineyard and makes the wines of this sprawling 1,100-acre Yarra Valley farm – a meeting place of mountains, rolling hills, bush, pasture, river-flats, creeks, and river.
A sustainable farmer with background as a viticulturist at De Bortoli in Yarra Valley – Stuart’s focus is on soils that are healthy, balanced and alive – using biological farming methods – minimal intervention in the winery provides depth, balance, complexity, and speak truthfully of where they came from. The Gathering Field Range is hand-picked from select parcels of fruit from their best blocks.
|Wine||A light skin-contact style with a 21-day ferment on skins. Flavours of tropical fruits, pink grapefruit and some spicy pear notes. Bright and fresh acidity with subtle chalky tannins. Not your typical Sauvignon Blanc style, a perfect lockdown new wine try.|
