Fetherston’s first sparkling wine, made to celebrate the birth of our little girl Lily Ida Lawrence.
VINEYARD: Tibooburra, Yellingbo (Upper Yarra Valley) Victoria
WINEMAKING: 100% Sauvignon Blanc sourced from the incredible Tibooburra vineyard in Yellingbo, the handpicked fruit was delicately pressed and fermented in neutral French puncheons, with secondary fermentation occurring in bottle (méthode traditionnelle). It’s undisgorged (on lees), meaning it’s a little cloudy and has wonderful texture.
TASTING NOTES: Hazy green gold in colour, this wine delivers aromas of white peach, brioche, cashew and cut straw. The palate is bright, fresh and youthful with scintillating acidity. It displays a delicate fine bead with gorgeous lemon sorbet flavours. Dangerously drinkable.
PEAK DRINKING: Present - 2030

2020 Fetherston 'Lily' Sparkling
'A fresh, youthful fizz, all stone fruits, green apple and faint bread dough yeasty character. Vibrant bubbles, crisp acidity, a good deal of refreshment factor and high drinkability. A very charming, fine feeling sparkling with broad appeal. Nicely done for a younger vintage wine.'
