Overview

Overview

Coldstream Hills was established in 1985 by James and Suzanne Halliday and has since grown to become one of Australia's leading and most awarded small wineries.

Our first release since 2015 – it’s a welcome return. This seafood-loving Sauvignon Blanc enjoys a dash of Semillon from the Rising Vineyard, adding texture, complexity and mouthfeel. The result is a fine and crisp white with beautifully balanced citrus acidity and good length of gooseberry and passionfruit flavours. The perfect accompaniment to the warmer weather to come.

Viticulture

Viticulture

A cool start to the growing season was overshadowed by a warm and humid late spring. Dry conditions prevailed throughout the summer months with gloriously warm days and cool nights. A relatively early start to the season, which was fortunately tempered by an even growing period to allow sugar and flavour development.

Sourced predominantly from hillside vineyards in the cool Upper Yarra, the fruit for our Sauvignon Blanc was gently pressed with portions of the juice being either barrel fermented and matured in seasoned French oak or fermented in stainless steel and stored on fine lees.
