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 fruit for this wine was picked from Fowles’ own Upton Run vineyard and from Tallis Vineyards in Central Victoria.
Vintage Notes: 2018 was an outstanding year. Conditions were near perfect throughout the whole growing season. The year was warm without being too hot and the vines were able to ripen the fruit without any stress. This means all aspect of fruit composition was excellent.
The fruit was fermented in in stainless steel to maintain primary fruit aromas, then matured for twelve months with new French oak.
