 Multiple Vineyards, Faraday, Bendigo G.I 

Apéritif time wine here; as the sun is setting or a weekend lunch-time drop. 
A lovely lifted, pithy, white floral aromatic reminiscent of spring-time.
Great nervousness on the palate; lemon, sweet pear fruit cut through with refreshing acidity and lovely balance. Cool, white, feathery milerality that we see from wine on Harcourt granite and a subtle talcy texture. It's extremely clean, easy and morish. 


The fruit is sourced from two sites on the western slopes of Leanganook (Mount Alexander). The Dash Farms site is planted on the southern ridge, sits at 475 metres elevation and has a north-south row orientation. The other source, the Igneous Vineyard, lies 2.5 kilometres to the northwest and sits at 430 metres elevation with an east-west row orientation. Both sites are on quartz and feldspar sand or decomposed granite, and were planted in the 1990s to the I clones.


Each block was hand-harvested over three picks starting on the 9th of March and concluding on the 21st. The fruit was whole bunch pressed and wild fermented in stainless steel, before being sent to old barrique, puncheon and demi muid where it rested until late summer. The wine was then racked back to tank for a couple of months before bottling on the 1st of March. Some sulphur at bottling.
