The wine exhibits lifted nectarine, ripe citrus and white blossom characters. A suggestion of cedar-like oak frames the generous stone fruit characters and complex minerality.
The palate is clean and lively with tremendous depth of ripe stone-fruit complexed with texture from the barrel fermentation. Bright citrusy acidity ensures a long and seamless finish providing enhanced structure and length.
This wine may be enjoyed on release but will find further complexity over the next 2–3 years.Download Tasting Notes
The 2016 vintage was fine and long producing SSB of great texture and underlying power and fruit purity. The Hillside SSB focuses on a selection of some of the coolest sites in the Margaret River region so as to produce great varietal character, while maintaining excellent vibrancy and freshness of acidity.
Partially fermented in a combination of seasoned and new oak barrels, using only indigenous yeasts with no acid additions, this is a wine that showcases Deep Woods' dedication to site selection and the region.
