The Story Wines is oddly located in a drab, southern suburb of Melbourne, Australia. There we receive grapes from some fabulous Grampians and Henty vineyards, and turn them into wine. Each vintage there is a new story to tell, and each year our label changes to reflect that story. Small budgets, small vineyards, engaging subjects.

2010 The Story Westgate Road Viognier Marsanne Roussanne

Cellar Door

Grown at Westgate Vineyard, in the hills just south of Great Western in the Grampians region of Western Victoria. We convinced the grower to replant some old Cabernet with white rhone varietals, 3 rows of Marsanne and one each of Roussanne and Viognier. This was the first crop harvested, and supplemented with a small amount of Viognier from a neighbour on the same road. The tiny yield was picked and pressed all together, settled overnight and then gravity racked to and allowed to ferment with wild yeasts in older French oak barriques. It was sulphured to prevent malolactic fermentation, then left to sit on yeast lees for 10 months before being filtered and bottled. It’s a floral, mid weight style with a silky glycerol texture.
