Winstead Sauvignon 2013 - LIMITED

The wine is a pale straw colour and has a fragrance reminiscent of passionfruit and pineapple. The first thing one notices on the palate is the sweet fruit and a fullness on the mid-palate. This is where the barrel and lees aging are starting to do their thing. They impart a creamy texture and a softening of the hard acids one associates with this variety giving it length and a silky texture. So the weight of the wine is more akin to Chardonnay than the NZ style Sauvys, and is greatly suited as an accompaniment to food. Try it with Asian foods or even a mild beef curry.

Winstead Vineyard

Neil Snare - owner, viticulturist and winemaker at Winstead vineyards in the Southern Midlands - is an early participant in the Tasmanian wine scene, planting his first vines in 1992. Run along Biodynamic lines, Winstead produces some of the most powerful Pinot Noirs in Australia. Along with his fantastic value Estate Pinot, Neil produces 2 distinct Single Vineyard wines. The "Lot 7" from his original plantings on the home block is a robust wine, with dark chocolate, plum, tobacco and cinnamon characters. His "Lot 16" is from a newly planted vineyard a little further up the hill from the latest clones of Pinot to come into the country (777, 667, 114, 115). This wine is more delicate with forest floor, strawberry and nutmeg characters. The palate is zippy and fresh, with a firm dry finish. All Winstead wines have a formidable history of ageing well. His rieslings continue to improve after 10-15 years in bottle.
