Pyren Vineyard Sauvignon is a rich and lavish white from the label’s tiny-but-mighty Pyrenees vineyards. The fruit is initially pressed to 100% new Hungarian oak, then rested for three months before being allowed to mature in stainless steel.
Weighty like butter on the palate, you will smell the zest of lime, grass, and earth. A light tropical palate is met with pear, green herbs, and peppercorn. This is a Sauvignon with decadence and presence.
The Pyrenees is located in western Central Victoria and was settled during the gold rush of the 1850s. The region is located northeast of the Grampians, north of the Great Dividing Range. Many of the vineyards are planted with an easterly aspect at an altitude of around 350 to 400m on quartz and decomposed slatey soils over Friable clay. Low rainfall in the area necessitates drip irrigation. Temperatures during the growing season are moderated by late afternoon southerly breezes. The Pyrenees is best known for producing cool climate peppery Shiraz and well-structured Cabernet Sauvignon.
