An easy drinking classic Margaret River wine. The lively palate offers zesty lemon sorbet flavours combined with passionfruit, green mango and a touch of spice. Fruit driven and refreshing with a wonderful purity, lip-smacking acidity and a crisp, dry finish. A ‘drink now’ style best consumed while bright and youthful.

Viticulture

Sauvignon Blanc (85%) Semillon (15%)
2019
Margaret River
The growing season began with a late budburst after a relatively cold Winter with reasonable rainfall. The cool Spring which followed resulted in some uneven flowering and fruit set, and generally lower than average yields. We experienced a significant (and unusual) rain event midJanuary which was timely due to the later season, and this was followed by some fine, mild weather to get vintage underway. There was a complete lack of Marri blossom leading up to and during harvest which meant that bird pressure was extreme! Bird-netting absolutely vital this season. The cooler ripening conditions did result in amazing flavour intensity and acid retention in whites (Chardonnay in particular). There was a minor rain event coupled with high humidity mid-March which presented some challenges requiring careful fruit selection; however, this gave way to some beautiful weather right through til late April. In summary 2019 was a variable season; however, ‘pressure makes diamonds’ as they say... and the highlights of the 2019 vintage reflect this quote perfectly. 100% of the fruit for this wine is Estate grown in the Wallcliffe subregion of Margaret River.

The fruit was crushed, destemmed and chilled before pressing. The settled, clean juice was then fermented at 15°C in stainless steel tanks using aromatic yeast strains to retain fresh varietal characteristics. The final components are then selected and assembled prior to stabilisation and bottling under screw cap closure.

Another cracking good wine from Glenn Goodall, whose signature of balance and completeness is all over this terrific entry-level blend. Bright and energetic in the mouth. This is what you want at this price point.
