Description

Just before Christmas 2019, the Tomich family lost half of it’s vineyards in the Woodside inferno and resulting smoke taint. Winemaker Randal Tomich returned to find half of his vineyard lost but he was just thankful that no one was hurt, including his fellow winemaker and grandson, Jack, who was working at the winery at the time. Once the danger had passed Tomich called on the community for help, organising several ‘working bee’ sessions with over 150 people turning out at some of the events to remove vines, repair irrigation systems and clean up debris. This 2018 Gruner originates from the same Woodside vineyard, light and fresh with aromas of orange blossom, creamy pear and white flowers, a refined palate displaying beautiful mineral notes and great acidity, finishing with good round mouth feel. A poignant reminder of the amazing wines which will once again be produced by this region.
