2019 Wheeler Vino Sauvignon Blanc
Not content with just his vineyard pursuits, Dale Wheeler also moonlights as a fellow wine merchant on Carlton’s Rathdowne village strip.
Having worked with others in the Yarra for some time, he’s sourcing fruit for his own label from a wonderful patchwork of sites. This comes off 20 year old vines from cool, upper Yarra spots.
Recognisably sauvignon, some nicely judged barrel fermentation adds texture and weight, to a refreshing palate of yellow grapefruit, grassy accents and a lovely dry finish.
