VINEYARD

Tomich Wines is a multi-generations, family owned boutique winery.The Tomich family has been making wine since 1946. Family patriarch John Tomich learnt first hand the skills and knowledge required to grow grapes from his father Ivan, who was born to a miner in Broken Hill in 1913. John, with an eye to detail, whilst endeavouring to produce better wines, completed his post graduate studies in wine making and undertook his Masters of Wine program in London.

The vineyard and winery are run by Randal and John, whose passion for the land and wine is backed up by a winemaking team, past and present, including Peter Leske, Tim Knappstein and Andrew Pike. Randal’s viticultural skills, particularly vineyard development and soils, are well respected in the industry having established vineyards in Australia and California for the likes of Penfolds, Pikes and Monterey Pacific.With 27 individual blocks planted over 322 acres, this allows the winemakers the diversity to select the perfect parcels of fruit with the right fruit expression. We farm with an organic approach, trading softly. Soil structure is key allowing vine roots to spread out and explore more soil and we rely on natural organisms to make nutrition from compost which the vines thrive on.

Wine facts

Label Notes:

Nestled in the Woodside dress circle, on the banks of the Onkaparinga River, our vineyards are amongst the finest in the Adelaide Hills. A collaboration between viticulturist and winemaker, only the best quality fruit is bicked at dawn and rushed to the winery. Using traditional techniques, each wine is made to stylistically express the variety. Our Sauvignon Blan delivers in a clean boutique style. Light and lively, delicately bouncing on the palate with notes of snow pea, passion fruit and tingling citrus, it has a fresh lifted finish.
