Crittenden Los Hermanos Saludos 2016

12% abv

The fruit for the classic Spanish styles is sourced from premium Victorian cool climate regions. Los Hermanos means ‘the siblings’ and the wines were created to celebrate Rollo and Zoe’s influence in the family business.More a wine for enjoyment than analysis, the Saludo al Txakoli lives up to its namesake as the perfect salute to a classic Basque white. Its floral nose makes a seamless transition to fruit on the palate while the ever important, ‘spritzy’ acidity brings the mouth to life in preparation for the next tasty Pintxos morsel. The perfect summer drink that demands food – and yes, for maximum drinking pleasure be sure to pour from a height!

Crittenden Estate was established in 1982 in the Mornington Peninsula, a region now renowned for its cool maritime climate, their 5ha planting doubling the region’s area under vine at the time. Mornington now has around 2,500 acres of vine. Garry Crittenden is recognised as a pioneer of cool climate viticulture in Australia and by the late 1980s he was in demand around Australia as a viticultural consultant.

Winemaking is now in the very capable hands of Garry’s son, Rollo Crittenden who returned to the family business in 2007. The Crittendens are becoming increasingly interested in understanding sustainability, working on nurturing and caring for their soils and employing vineyard practices that protect their plants, microclimate and environment. They are currently moving towards achieving organic certification, with the long-term possibility of biodynamic conversion. Rollo has recently embarked on replanting and grafting some of their older vines to new, top quality Burgundian clones of Pinot Noir. In total they have 5 hectares under vine – 2.5ha is made up of multiple clones of Pinot Noir; 1.5ha is Chardonnay, with a further 0.5ha each of Savagnin and Arneis. In addition to working with estate grown fruit, they also buy some grapes from like-minded local growers.
