Terrason Aligote 2019 - King Valley
Closure: Screw cap
Bottle size: 750ml
Grafted three winters ago from cuttings taken in the Mornington Peninsula. Grown in the deep volcanic soils of Whitfield in the King Valley. Hand picked, crushed and pressed straight to a stainless steel tank for natural fermentation on full solids. Nine month elevage without any movement. A much more traditional Aligoté.
My first experience with Aligoté was in Gevrey Chambertin which was made into a stunning Bourgogne Blanc for staff and clients, later in Meursault a more serious rendition. Often misunderstood it’s an age-worthy variety that can be cellared for a decade and more. Expect to see citrus, alpine herbs, and a saline/brininess that is derived from the iron rich ancient volcanic soils.
At Terrason we specialise in not just making wine but importing from small Domaines in France. We aren’t chasing producers from any particular region, rather we are tasting through cellars and choosing the wines we love and the people we have a connection with. All our producers are certified organic and make natural/honest wines. Expect to see varieties your not familiar with such as Ploussard, Savignin, Aligoté and even a little Cesar.
Our Yarra Valley and King Valley wines are all made from purchased fruit in the tradition of a negoce. Our growers run what the French call “lutte raisonnée” viticulture or “reasoned struggle”. The choices made must always be carried out with the vineyards health, longevity and sustainability in mind. Our wines don’t masquerade as something they are not and they are best described as “traditional”.

In most instances, a case is 12 bottles, including all mixed cases. Please note that the case quantity can vary between 3-12 bottles, depending on individual wine value and packaging configuration.
The number of bottles that define a straight case is marked in the product pricing page (i.e. "as part of any 6", "single bottle" and "3 or 6 or 12 bottle case").
Where all or part of the order is less than a case (as defined in the product pricing options, or 12 bottles if mixed) shipping will be charged as per your postcode at our cost price, this charge amount will be visible before your order confirmation and payment.
For example, a mixed bottle order of 18 bottles will include a freight charge for the second mixed case of only 6 bottles. A mixed 24 bottle order would be totally freight free.
Our intention is to offer free shipping to as many wine lovers as possible, however, given the geographically vast size of Australia, it is not possible for us to offer free shipping to 100% of postcodes.
