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.

2019 Sauvignon

Sauvignon Blanc needs to be pretty special to make it into The Story Wines line-up and this wine from 2019 is just that.

 

From the tiny vineyard owned by the Falk family outside the coastal town of Port Campbell which has long made lovely Pinot Noir, there is also a small patch of Sauvignon which yielded only a tonne of super-flavourful grapes in 2019. It ripens late and accumulates an abundance of tropical fruits to temper the steely acidity that the cold vineyard naturally provides.

 

Winemaking is simple – I pressed it to neutral old barriques and allowed it to ferment wild, which took several months to conclude. There it sat on its yeast lees for a further few months (gathering texture and complexity, I hope!), before bottling in December. A pure wine full of vineyard personality and a million miles from what you may think Savvy Blanc is.
