Our Wine
Foothills Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc 2015
With its close proximity to the sea, and directly influenced by the cooling afternoon bzeezes, this wine shows cool climate characteristics. There are pear and gentle gooseberry flavours alongside some green notes of capsicum, sage leaf, all combining to create a refreshingly dry wine that can be enjoyed on its own, as well as partnered with food. The touch of Semillon adds to the palate weight, giving fuller body and good length, without detracting from Sauvignon's flavour profile.
Alc: 13.65  RS: 4.7  pH: 3.40  TA: 5.9  VA: 0.62  TSO2: 149  FSO2: 36
Foothills Vineyards Chardonnay 2015
The maiden vintage. With 9 months on the lees in barrel and 25% new oak, this wine was designed to be food compatible rather than justy showy.
Alc: 13.89  RS: 5.4  pH: 3.39  TA: 6.5  VA: 0.76  TSO2: 146  FSO2: 18
Foothills Vineyards Syrah 2014
Has layers of interest: lovely fruit expression, plums and cherries, a hint of wild berries, and then peppery savoury notes, very typical of the variety.
Alc: 14.27  RS: 2.1  pH: 3.66  TA: 5.2  VA: 0.53  TSO2: 117  FSO2: 26
Foothills Vineyards The Partners White 2015
A white Bordeaux blend perked up by the inclusion of Viognier. The essential freshness and drinkability of Sauvignon/Semillon is there, but with added aromatics and flavour which demand your attention. There's apple and pear at core, but also a slightly savoury element from lees contact, all brightened by Viognier's exotic perfume and tropical flavour.
Alc: 13.66  RS: 4.8  pH: 3.40  TA: 5.9  VA: 0.57  TSO2: 148  FSO2: 32
Foothills Vineyards Dry Rose 2015
Attractive samlom coloured 2015 from Shiraz offer the expected red fruit profile, in this cae just-picked crunchy strawberries, but the additions of Semillon and Viognier take it to another level. Viognier's aromatic contribution is floral hints, while the subtle spanspek flavours come from Semillon.
Alc: 13.65  RS: 4.4  pH: 3.42  TA: 5.6  VA: 0.34  TSO2: 150  FSO2: 27
