2017 Chèvre Sauvignon Blanc
Jordy Kay started working in vineyards at 15 years of age on the Mornington Peninsula. At 17 he left school to pursue a career in winemaking and did his first vintage in Margaret River, with vintages in years following in Austria, Portugal and Tasmania before becoming assistant winemaker at Jamsheed in the Yarra Valley at an astonishingly young age. Gary Mills of Jamsheed played a big hand in mentoring Jordy over the years, and along the way Jordy learnt a lot from inspiring collaborations and taught himself chemistry and biology through books before studying winemaking and viticulture properly. The Jamsheed Vineyard is farmed organically by Gary Mills and Rhen Dodd in the heart of the Yarra Valley. The Sauvignon Blanc is grown on red clay and bluestone. It spent one week on skins, foot stomped daily and after pressing was transferred to old wood where it sat for a year.
