Chardonnay, Viognier and Marsanne
Sirius is the brightest star visible from earth. Sirius White is predominantly Chardonnay with a whisper of Viognier and Marsanne. Our Marsanne and Viognier plantings have come of age and we now find the wine is enhanced by increased quantities of these complimentary varietals. This wine has hit new heights in both flavour and aroma. Sirius White is a marriage of Chardonnay, Viognier and Marsanne. Giving this wine a warm ripe apricot character with lifted acidity, scented white peach and honeysuckle.
A little Crazy but Siriusly good!

In the winery the process is gentle and precise preferring time to fine the wines rather than technology. Indigenous yeasts and bacteria are used and the fermentation takes place in stainless steel or larger format oak barrels, all housed in a thermally clad building.
Sulphur dioxide is used to allow the wine to travel and age however these levels are kept to a minimum. The properties are certified organic and biodynamic confirmed with the trademarks Bio-Gro and Demeter.
Traditional viticulture is practiced in all vineyards and all are dry-farmed, with no insecticide, herbicide, systemic fungicide or soluble fertilisers used.
