Strathbogie Ranges, Victoria, Australia
The Fowles family is very committed to ethical and sustainable viticultural practices, as well as hunting and living off the 800 acre expanse they occupy in this remote region, Matt Fowles launched the Farm to Table range of wines to help promote this deep connection to the land.
The Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from two of the Fowles estate vineyards – Upton Run and Billi’s Vineyards – located in the super cool-climate Strathbogie Ranges of Central Victoria at an elevation of over 1600 feet.
Vintage Comments: 2021 was a cool vintage with low yields, providing excellent fruit quality. Sauvignon Blanc likes the cool weather and excelled this vintage, showing cool climate purity with intense varietal characters and lovely natural acidity.
The grapes were gently pressed before being crushed and fermented in stainless steel, for a clean and fresh style.
