Sigurd is a label started by Daniel Graham. The name Sigurd is a tribute to his great grandfather and his Norwegian heritage, who Daniel only ever met once as a 2 year old. What started as a side project and one barrel in 2012 has become many more barrels today and no longer just a side business.
Notes from the winemaker:
Chenin Blanc (100%). Sourced from one of the most northern blocks in Clare Valley and Barossa Valley for the first time. The Chenin vineyard in Clare valley is around 58 years old which is practiced organically. The Barossa Valley vineyard is around 30 years old and was picked two weeks after the Clare vineyard this year. It was picked around 11.5 baume and whole bunch pressed to 4th use Russian oak puncheons and a new Slovenian oak Puncheon. About 30% of the fruit was fermented on as whole bunches for 14 days then pressed off into the new Slovenian puncheon. The fermentation took about 20 days to ferment on lees with full malolactic fermentation as well and left in oak until October before it was racked and a small amount of sulfur added before.
