Lost Farm Wines is about discovery and potential. Through key relationships with a small number of growers in the cold climate of Tasmania’s Tamar Valley we aim to make wines with soil, soul and place in mind.
The Lost Farm Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from two vineyards in the Tamar valley. The first is located just south of the township of Launceston. Glenbothy Vineyard has a north easterly aspect and is characterised by dark volcanic clays. The second vineyard is located 50mins to the north of Launceston on the western banks of the Tamar river with distinctive alluvial clay. Both sites deliver Sauvignon Blanc that is bursting with freshness, acidity and vibrant fruits. The grapes were harvested based on flavour ripeness in late March and then pressed to stainless still before being lightly racked prior to fermentation. The wine was lightly fined and filtered prior to being bottled young and fresh.
Clean, light, fragrant aromas of salad greens and lemon juice; The palate is light, refreshing and clean with passionfruit and gooseberry notes. Appealing varietal fruit flavour of some charm, finishing firm with a refreshing aftertaste. Intense flavour. Gravelly mineral notes later.
