The Debacle savagnin

When we planted  our vines from the CSIRO, we though we were planting Albarino. That was, until a visiting French expert clapped eyes on them and sensed an imposter.  Tests revealed it to be no Spaniard, but the French Savagnin where it makes a semi-fortified wine in France, known as "yellow wine". But not to be deterred, we continued making a white table wine the Australian way, The Debacle was born, and we love it.


Far from being a fortified wine, The Debacle is a light, white wine with a lemon-lime palate with a hint of pear. It's more like a dry riesling than a sauvignon blanc.  It's great with fish, or sipping outdoors on a balmy summer evening.
