Never heard of this wine? There’s a good reason why! The original European cuttings from this varietal were wrongly labelled and shipped to Australia as albarino, another grape varietal from Spain. After years of growing on the Tucks estate, in 2009 a DNA test revealed our albarino was, in fact, savagnin, a high-quality grape from eastern France.
We’re super lucky to have savagnin in the Mornington Peninsula, and Tucks Savagnin is unique in its fresh, bright and playful style. Citrus, pear and apple prance around on the palate, while a surprising pop of spices softens into a creamy, lingering finish. Deeeee-licious!
