JO’S WINEMAKING / VITICULTURE
I made this wine from a blend of fruit grown in our vineyards in the Goulburn Valley and along the Murray River.  Following delivery and crushing of the grapes during the cool of the night, the Sauvignon Blanc juice was cold settled and racked.  An aromatic yeast was used for inocculation and this parcel was cool fermented for 7 days.  The resulting wine is fresh and vibrant showing lovely tropical fruit flavours with a hint of typical herbaceous Sauvignon Blanc characters. 

JO’S HARVEST NOTES
As a Winemaker, the challenges that each harvest brings never cease to amaze me.  Just when you think you have an understanding of what’s going on, another season hits bringing with it yet another challenge and a completely new scenario.  In 2015 we had little rain and warm tempratures, leading to fast ripening, early in the season.  Once temperatures cooled, things slowed down and we saw an increase in flavours and quality.  

JO’S WINE DESCRIPTION
This beautifully balanced unoaked wine displays intense tropical fruit aromas of passionfruit, papaya and ripe pineapple with a hint of herbaceous characters such as capsicum and tomato bush leaves.  These characters follow through onto the palate and the fresh, crisp acid provides a lingering, refreshing finish.  

JO’S FOOD RECOMMENDATIONS
A fabulous food wine, Pickle’s Sauvignon Blanc is a great all rounder and is best enjoyed surrounded by love and laughter.
