Very pale with a vibrant, light green rim.
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.
Dry, juicy and refreshing with intense, long flavours.
Drink now or over the next 12 months.
A mild spring at the start of the growing season, leading to a dry early summer provided ideal growing conditions, for even vine establishment. The challenge of several summer rainfall events later in the season was managed with great care by the viticultural team, where their attention to detail resulted in fruit that produced expressive, flavourful wines.
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.
