Tasting notes from the winery for Petite Pogue Sauvignon Blanc 2020
Winemakers notes: This wine is made with 100% Sauvignon Blanc grapes sourced from the Pogue vineyard, Toolamba in Central Victoria. The vineyard is 135 acres of prime viticultural land with extensive Goulburn River frontage. Lower alcohol styles have been created through early picking and alcohol reduction techniques to produce wines which retain full flavour and varietal character yet offer the option of a reduced level of alcohol. Organic and vegan friendly pea protein was used to clarify the wine.
Harvest notes: The Summer of 2020 will be remembered for the devastating bushfires throughout Southern Queensland, coastal NSW and Eastern Victoria. Thankfully there were no fires in Central Victoria so our vineyard in Toolamba was unaffected. The temperatures fluctuated heavily throughout the season, but picking continued producing good flavours in the whites, and terrific colours in the reds - not unusual for a dry growing season but mostly testament to our diligent team in the vineyard.
Tasting Notes: A grassy herbal bouquet combined with vibrant lemon, passionfruit, and fresh peas. The palate celebrates punchy, herbaceous fruit flavours of green apple, grapefruit and homemade lemonade all in perfect balance, with a clean line of acidity.
