Tasting Notes

colour

Very pale with a vibrant, light green rim. 

aroma

This is the very essence of Margaret River SSB; Semillon characters of herbs, lemongrass, melon and nectarine along with a twist of lanolin drive the blend with Sauvignon layers of lime zest, cut grass and passion fruit pulp adding a lovely lift.

palate

Dry, juicy and refreshing with intense, long flavours.

cellaring

Drink now or over the next 12 months. 

Technical

Vintage

Another fortunate vintage for the Margaret River Region, especially when compared to what some other regions in parts of Australia had to endure. A very early start and finish to the vintage due to a dry and warm spring which warmed the soil and promoted early and healthy vine growth. The white harvest was over quick with temperatures in early March then moderating which slowed ripening in the reds which allowed flavour to intensify and tannins to soften.

Winemaking

The fruit was softly pressed with only the highest quality juice used to create the final blend. The juice was then settled for a few days at 10⁰C before being racked off, inoculated and fermented at an even rate to maximise fruit expression. When dry, most batches were clarified to remove the yeast lees before being chilled and stabilised. This wine was filtered only once prior to an early bottling. The 2019 vintage had lower than average yield but the smaller quantity showcased exceptional quality, a standard which the Margaret River region is renowned for.
