View Wines Alvarinho 2017

Sancerre Estate is a B&B nestled in the hillside at Ballandean. With a picturesque view overlooking the vineyards across to the hills in the south, you can't help but feel relaxed.

The vineyard was purchased a couple of years ago by Brett and Stacey Allan and renamed Sancerre Estate after being inspired by a trip through the French countryside. Wines produced from estate grown fruit fall under the View Wines label. Old vines have been reinvigorated and new plantings have also taken place. Only four wines make up the range at this stage - Semillon, Sauvignon Semillon blend, Merlot Rosé and this Alvarinho.

This one of a few Alvarinho (Albarino) plantings in the Granite Belt region and it seems to have found a happy home.
