The Helen’s Hill wine range holds the spirit of those who have gone before us. It celebrates passion, persistence and the genuine connection between people and land. Each wine is hand crafted and under goes an arduous selection process before it makes it into a Helen’s Hill bottle. As we know, great wine is made in the vineyard and as such only small select parcels of fruit from certain rows of our single vineyard site are hand picked at harvest. Each wine is fermented in select French oak barrels under the watchful eye of winemaker Scott McCarthy. Prior to bottling each barrel is tasted and ranked with only the best barrels selected for the Helen’s Hill range of wines.
Helen’s Hill ‘Evolution’ Fumé Blanc Sauvignon Blanc 2015
This wine is a pure example of the Helen’s Hill mantra. Throughout the year the team nurture the vines to make sure the fruit has all the wild yeasts it needs to undergo a full natural ferment. When the time is right, they bring the fruit into the winery we do one thing. Press it off into an old French oak barrel. That’s where the Evolution begins.
16 months later, this is the result. A uniquely French expression of Sauvignon Blanc with a Yarra Valley twist that will surprise your tastebuds and open your mind to the wonderful potential of this type of wine.
