Viticulture

70% Sauvignon Blanc 30% Semillon
2023
Margaret River
The growing season began with a late budburst after a relatively cold winter with reasonable rainfall. The cool, wet spring which followed meant an extended flowering period for early bloomers, but with good fruit-set for most varieties resulting in yields which were generally higher than average. There was a complete lack of Marri blossom leading up to and during harvest which meant that bird pressure was extreme. Bird-netting and monitoring was vital this season! A very dry, mild summer offered perfect ripening conditions and harvest began mid-February. There wasn’t any significant rain to speak of at all throughout the white harvest, and the first of the reds. In summary 2023 was an excellent vintage. Fruit for this wine is all grown in the Wallcliffe subregion of Margaret River; predominantly estate grown on our Boodjidup and Lagan vineyards and supplemented with a portion of fruit from Rosa Park Vineyard. All vineyards are Sustainable Winegrowing Australia certified.

The fruit was crushed, destemmed and chilled before pressing. The settled, clean juice was then fermented at 15ᵒC 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.

A blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon, all from the Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River. Fermentation in stainless steel, to retain freshness. Pale lemon in colour, this is a gentle style but brimming with flavour. Tropical notes, hints of passionfruit and a minerally backing tying it together. Supple in texture, this offers ripe, generous flavours and a fine lingering finish. Now would be optimum, but any time for the next three to four years will see it providing pleasure.
