The Story Wines is oddly located in a drab, southern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.

2011 The Story Westgate Vineyard Marsanne Roussanne Viognier

Cellar Door

Grown at Westgate Vineyard, site of some of our best Shiraz grapes. We convinced the grower to replant some old Cabernet with white rhone varietals, 3 rows of Marsanne and one each of Roussanne and Viognier. This was only the second crop harvested from the vines. The tiny yield was picked and pressed all together, settled overnight and then gravity racked to and allowed to ferment with wild yeasts in older French oak barriques. It was sulphured to prevent malolactic fermentation, then left to sit on yeast lees for 9 months before being filtered and bottled. It’s a floral, mid weight style with a silky glycerol texture
