- The Home of Artisan Australian Wine!
The Grower Series of wines is a new venture for Erinn and Janet Klein of Ngeringa. It’s a chance for the couple to spread their winemaking wings beyond their beautiful biodynamic vineyard. Working in partnership with farmers from the region, trying some new things. A fun little venture.
This is a fumé blanc style of wine, with the Sauvignon Blanc fruit undergoing time in barrel and partial malo for a little extra mid-palate creaminess. It’s a blistering example of the style, both lively and powerful all at once.
What It Tastes Like
Powerhouse nose. Fresh cut pineapple, custard apple notes, some fresh cream and passionfruit. It’s all good. It has some serious get up and go in the mouth; creamy, a little grippy and lively all at once. Stylish version of Sauvignon Blanc with barrel work. Good stuff.
Made in a Fume Blanc style - 30% barrel fermented in old French oak, full malolactic fermentation. The rest of the grapes are fermented in stainless and undergo partial malolactic. Fruit is not estate grown but comes off a conventionally farmed block in the Adelaide Hills.
