Additional information

Trentham Estate

The Murphy family arrived in Australia in 1909 from Ireland and so are numbered among the Irish ‘Winegeese’ who, from the 18th century onwards, engaged in the wine trade in the countries of their adoption and were instrumental in the viticultural development of some of the finest wine-growing areas of the world. Today the many and illustrious wines and labels of the Winegeese have become synonymous with quality on the international market.

The winemaking philosophy at Trentham Estate has always been to produce high-quality varietal wines with an emphasis on full fruit flavour while offering fantastic value for money right across the range. On trend with varietal plantings and never shy to try the untried, they recently achieved a 5* winery rating from James Halliday; the very first estate in the region to do so.

Production

Vinification details
The grapes were picked during the cool of the night, de-stemmed and pumped into the press. Only the best quality free run juice was taken off, cold settled then later racked to ferment. The ferment was carried out with selected yeast to enhance the Sauvignon Blanc varietal characters. Post fermentation, the wine was stabilised, clarified and bottled.
