    Marinated Scallop Salad with Fresh Pear

Sirromet is passionate about environmentally sustainable wine production. Our initiatives include responsible water use, waste recycling, energy conservation, re-vegetation, wildlife conservation, and eco-friendly farming practices. We are committed to reducing our dependence on mains water, by collecting and purifying rainwater for potable use and dam water for irrigation. All green waste, cardboard and paper from the winery and restaurants – is recycled through an onsite worm farm for later use as fertiliser. Plastic and glass waste is also recycled off-site. Sirromet continues to innovate to increase efficiencies and reduce wastage. From smarter computerised refrigeration to use of modern “one-pass” filtration systems, recycling waste heat to make hot water and reducing our carbon footprint via 200kW of solar PV, our commitment is to make wine of the highest quality without compromising our environmental values.

The Story

WINEMAKING COMMENTS: The grapes for this wine are sourced from Block 8, Seven Scenes vineyard, which is high in the hills at 850m elevation. Wild yeast is used most years for our premium Chardonnay, with full barrel fermentation in new French oak barriques. The wine is then aged on yeast lees in oak for 12 months with batonnage for 3 months. The very best barrels of the vintage were hand-selected for this limited edition.

COLOUR: Green with gold tinges

CELLARING: Drink now – 2017

NOSE: Citrus, lime rind, waxy green apple with small cashew nuttiness and perfumed French oak.

PALATE: Dense, ripe, rich and full throughout the palate. This is a very textured, stylish wine, with excellent acidity and length. Citrus and green apple combine with ripe white peach and figs, slightly funky, nutty characters from the wild yeast and a hint of creaminess from the malolactic portion. Fruit and acidity are integrated seamlessly with waxy, vanilla French oak.

Vintage 2013

With 100 hectares under vine, Sirrromet’s vineyards are located in the high altitude of Queensland’s Granite Belt region. Situated 600-1500 metres above sea level and approximately three hours drive south west of Brisbane, “The Granite Belt is one of the most exciting wine destinations in the country” Max Allen, The Weekend Australian. The Granite Belt was formed by an ancient tectonic uplift that forced a significant Granite Mass 820m above sea level. Over time, softer rocks and soils have eroded, leaving a clearly identifiable Granite Plateau. Due to its elevation, this plateau experiences some of Australia’s coldest winters. The sub-zero temperatures cause water that has been absorbed in exposed granite boulders and rocks to freeze and expand, forcing mineral particles into the soil. This annual soil enrichment allows local vineyards and orchards to grow the highest quality produce with unique, rich flavours.

Written Notes

Intense, yellow colour. Pronounced, rich, smoky and toasty nose with melted butter and spices. Dry palate shows vivid acidity, fresh lemony fruit, oily texture and good backbone from toasty oak. The aftertaste is driven with zesty lemon flavours and wood. A tight finish. Decant for 3 hours and serve with smoked salmon with lemon risotto.
