At the 1983 Royal Sydney Wine Show, Lillypilly Estate made a resounding debut on the Australian wine scene when one of its first wines, 1982 Tramillon ®, won a gold medal and the trophy for Best NSW White Wine.
This unique blend, which brings together two of the world's great white grape varieties — gewurztraminer and semillon — has become one of Lillypilly Estate's hallmark wines.
Gewurztraminer has its home in Alsace and makes wines that are extremely spicy, fragrant and seductive.
Semillon is an important variety in Bordeaux and also Australia, where it is widely grown in many regions, including the Hunter Valley, Margaret River, the Barossa Valley and the Riverina. It is an extremely versatile grape variety which can be used to make both luscious, sweet botrytised wines and crisp, fresh dry whites.
Lillypilly Estate's Tramillon ® combines the fragrance of gewurztraminer with the full-bodied freshness of semillon to provide an immensely satisfying slightly sweet white wine.
Notes: Dark cherry colour. Lovely blackcurrant characters with cedar and pepper. Ripe fruit flavours with an elegant dry finish.
General Info: The grapes for this wine were harvested from Cabernet Sauvignon vines which were planted in 1972.Food: Lamb Shanks, Beef
Notes: Attractive pale yellow colour with lovely green hues. Delicate fresh and savoury with a zesty crisp finish.
General Info: In the Old World Vermentino is commonly thought to be Spanish in origin. Although it is currently grown in several countries around the Mediterranean, its best known examples come from northern Italy (particularly in the region of Liguria) and the island of Sardinia, where the wines are crisp, citrusy and generally unoaked. It is also the most widely planted white grape on the island of Corsica, where high altitude and hot climate prevails. It is perfect for the New World and the Lillypilly Vineyard.TROPHY 2015 PERTH ROYAL WINE SHOW BEST DRY WHITE VARIETAL GOLD 2015 PERTH ROYAL WINE SHOW GOLD 2016 WINEWISE SMALL VIGNERONS AWARDS, CANBERRA

General Info: The semi-arid climate that prevails in the Riverina softens towards the end of autumn with cool nights, and mornings made damp by fog and dew. These are perfect conditions for the development of botrytis fungus on the grapes, and the production of sweet white botrytis wines. The climate is one of the strengths of the Riverina region, helping to make it an ideal wine grape region in Australia, and the main factor in making it one of the best producers of botrytis wines in the world.
