Description

Tessa Brown and Jeremy Schmölzer of Vignerons Schmölzer & Brown in Victoria’s Beechworth lost their fruit to smoke taint last year, so they sourced from other regions. “I felt like a refugee early on, but now I feel like an explorer. You really have to make a choice to look for the positives,” Tessa says.  Amelia Ball, Halliday’s Wine Companion

Single site Sauvignon from the Willow (Weide in German) Lake vineyard in the Yarra Valley. Hand‐picked, crushed, foot stomped, basket‐pressed and wild fermented in a mix of old oak and stainless with ten months on lees before bottling. The crisp late season acidity is rounded with judicious malolactic fermentation giving a fresh curd note, and the restrained ripeness shows through with nettle leaf, floral herb and fresh grass.
