La Francesa Savagnin

2013 Golding La Francesa Savagnin

La Francesa: The French Lady, in Spanish. Confused? So were we! In 2006 we planted a block of what we thought was Albarino, only to find out later it was actually the rare French varietal Savagnin (sah-vah-nyan) a white wine grape grown primarily in France’s Jura region.

The soft press juices were treated separately and cold fermented using selected yeast strains to preserve fruit character. La Francesa brings an enduring and richly layered palate full of earthy spice, pear and stone fruit and finishing with fresh citrus. This wine retains its wonderful natural fruit acidity. Made to drink now until 5 years.

Cascara Savagnin

2015 Golding Cascara Savagnin

This parcel of fruit was hand picked from our Western Branch Vineyard, whole bunch pressed, fermented on skins for one month and then aged in older French oak for twelve months. A complex and intriguing wine, it is savoury, with a citrus tang, herbaceous and bone dry. Notes of waxy honeycomb and dried herbs are present on the palate in this unexpected and punchy offering to the senses. Like the imminent arrival of a late summer storm, there is a wonderful tension between all the elements of this wine.

The 2014 chardonnay has fragrant aromas of crunchy green apple and stonefruit with roasted nut derived oak characters. Partial barrel fermentation has provided complexity and texture to the palate, whilst retaining the elegant cool climate chardonnay characters of tangerine and citrus fruit. A harmonious marriage of fruit intensity and restrained toasted oak will be further rewarded by careful cellaring.
