Tasting notes from the winery for Stefano Lubiana Sauvignon Blanc 2019

Our biodynamic Sauvignon Blanc is anything but ordinary. It displays expressive aromatics, a delicate aroma (unusual for such a commonly pungent variety) and an acidic zing and liveliness on the palate. It’s a wine of subtlety and elegance, traits not normally associated with this variety. It displays more texture than most due to our low crop levels and extended time on lees in our winery. 70% stainless steel fermented and stored. 20% fermented and stored in Austrain oak foeder. 10% fermented and stored in seasoned oak cask. Aged for 8 months before blending and bottling after cross-flow filtration.

The wine displays gooseberry and fig flavours on the nose, which are complemented by crisp acidity on the front palate, ripe stone fruit and melon on the mid palate and finishes with hints of fresh asparagus.

Stefano Lubiana 

Tasmania’s first and only certified biodynamic vineyard has been cultivating vines using biodynamic methods since 2010. This means that their wines are free of all synthetic treatments, additives and pesticides. Instead they travel the alternative path, stepping back in time and using cosmic rhythms to ensure soil regenereation as well as effective vine care through all phases of the year’s seasonal cycles.

Their much sought-after wines are the result of a passionate unrelenting quest for perfection. This passion, along with free thinking and attention to detail allows them to create wines which reflect this vision. Their focus on traditional and environmentally sensitive principals has only strengthened their desire to create wines that have a unique and distinctive character, with free-flowing elegance and quality.

Huon Hooke The Real Review 95 points

Very light yellow-straw colour. The aromas are reserved, shy and savoury, with straw, hay, blond tobacco and dried herb nuances. It opens with a touch of apparent sweetness then finishes clean and dry, more savoury but still quite intense, with moderated varietal character but excellent vinosity. Great balance and harmony. Rich fruit. A very well-made wine. A benchmark.

Mike Bennie The Wine Front 91 points

Tangy, fresh n frisky feeling wine. Brisk and crisp, littered with tart green apple and citrus scents and flavours with licks of steely brightness. It’s a relatively simple kind of wine but accurate in its portrayal of the variety and very fresh feeling. No brainer.
