Like the mythical dragon after which it is named, Savitar is a wine of power, polish, and an elegantly long tail.
Lopresti Home Block Vineyard - Flour Mill Road, Whites Valley, McLaren Vale.
Lopresti Home Block, less than 2 kilometers from the coastal town of Aldinga and only 4 kilometers from the beach itself. Ngaltinga Formation derived alluvial grey sandy clay and biscay soils with pockets of sand interbeds. These highly reputed soils maintain soil moisture during the growing season but dry out in summer which helps to control vine vigour and concentrate flavours in the fruit. Savitar fruit is taken from a particularly rocky section in the North East section of this block. Cooling sea breezes off the Gulf of St Vincent cool the vineyard and help to retain freshness and vibrancy.
