The signature Jones Road Sauvignon Blanc style gently combines intense cool-climate fruit character with gentle winemaking complexity. There’s added richness in 2015 due to the warm dry season. The wine shows attractive, ripe tropical and citrus fruit characters with some savoury French oak. This brief time in wood also adds subtle palate richness; bright natural acidity keeps the finish, crisp and fresh.
The Frewer family established Jones Road vineyard in 1997 at Somerville on the Mornington Peninsula overlooking Westernport Bay. The maritime climate of this region produces some of Australia’s best cool climate wines due to the late ripening, fertile soil and careful vineyard management. Winemaking at Jones Road starts in the vineyard; careful management of yields and hand-picking ensure that the grapes reach the winery in premium condition.
