Post Card - Sauvigunon Blanc
POST CARD : King Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Like golden flecks of sun on cool Mediterranean waters, freshness comes alive with pure
tropical yellow stone fruits and notes of Fragipani. An essence of Crisp Granny Smith apples
and native finger limes are followed with a precise minerality.
Having a ball!
The sun shone in the King Valley. The dryer conditions and moderate temperatures allowed sugar
levels to develop and provide steady ripening, resulting in good natural acidity. The perfect
growing season with timely rainfalls leant terrific aromatics to our Sauvignon Blanc.

Our Sauvignon Blanc is essential purity. We go through painstaking
lengths to preserve the natural Sauvignon Blanc flavours by keeping
the fruit and juice cool and gently handled in the winery.
The wholebunches are pressed very gently over a long period of time to avoid too
much skin damage and phenolic uptake.

About the Vineyard:
The climate and growing environment of the King Valley has been known to be uncanningly
similar to that of Southern Italy. Hence, the richness and quality of traditional Italian grape
varieties grow beautifully in the Valley.
Ciccone Estate and Outlaws Peak Vineyard are nestled in Cheshunt, in the tranquil and
picturesque King Valley of North East Victoria’s Legends, Wine & High Country, a terrain that
ranges from snow capped Alps to sun baked fields. The valley’s continental climate provides
warm days and cool nights, influenced by the katabatic breeze that sweeps northward down
the valley from the high country. A range of microclimates are available from the slightly
warmer valley f loors to the bracingly cool upper slopes, creating the perfect environment for
producing optimal fruit, which allows us to specialise in a variety of unique wines and styles.
