2019 Bobar 'Fanny Finch' Sauvignon Blanc

$53.00

Region: Yarra Valley, VIC

Variety: Sauvignon Blanc

Farming: Organic

Fanny Finch was the first known woman in Australia to vote, in 1856 in a municipal election in Castlemaine, Victoria, 52 years before suffrage in Australia. She was generally a remarkable woman, a woman of African heritage, single mother and successful businesswoman in a world overwhelmingly dominated by white men. This wine is named after her for no other reason than to celebrate her remarkable strength, courage and tenacity.

35 year old Sauvignon Blanc vines on the east facing slopes at the base of the Christmas Hills provide the fruit for this wine that has such depth and complexity. The wine reflects without hesitation its origins; the depth and innate complexity of the mature vines’ flavoursome fruit, and the combination of power and restraint from the exposed slopes protected from the western and northern heat by the precipitous Christmas Hills range.

Bright clear yellow in colour and an aroma rich in stonefruit, orange rind and heady floral notes with spice and curry leaf notes deftly woven though it. The palate has a compelling counterplay between intensity and lightness, the richness of fruit is braced with a mineral water type purity, freshness and length.
