‘Yard Dog’

White Wine   |   South Australia - Australia

About

Yard Dog. The old faithful friend and beloved household pet the whole family adores, occasionally superseded as the last one bites the dust (or the last drop is drunk). It is the quintessential companion, whatever the weather, the mood or the occasion. It is said that a dog will reflect the character of its owner and a wine will reflect the character of its maker. 2019 marked a label change with a new dog being featured proudly. Meet Sunny Sanders, youngest daughter of Vine Street Imports’ founder Ronnie Sanders. Sunny, like her father, are determined, carefree, and very fun loving. These qualities are certainly seen in this delicious white blend.

Small lots of Sauvignon Blanc were blended with a touch of Pinot Gris and a splash of textural Sémillon. Each parcel was fermented separately and blended about a month before bottling.

Tasting Note

Pale yellow. Aromas of apple, grapefruit and honey, plus a slightly herbaceous peppery element. Boasts really great texture for its low alcohol (and modest price point), with distinctly salty and peppery nuances to its grapefruit, and anise flavors. There is fruit here but it is by no means a ‘fruity’ wine. Finishes with a minute pinch of sale and mouthwatering acidity.
