Martin Siebert is a winemaker from Victoria's Yarra Valley with a penchant for cool climate wines. He believes great wines can only be made from great sites and sources his fruit from sites that can deliver some of the most interesting wines in the Yarra Valley.
This is a Sauvignon Blanc with lusciousness and complex aromatics, more Sancerre in style than Marlborough. The fruit for this wine was picked from a mature vineyard in the Yarra Valley's North before the cloudy juice was fermented by wild yeasts in two 500L French oak barrels (50% new). Extended contact with yeast post-ferment has helped in giving this wine its generosity. Think guava, gunflint and lime, finishing with oyster shell like saltiness. Delicious. Panel tasting notes: this makes me like a savvy b again!
