Vintage 

A very distinct vintage - the dry, warm Spring and Summer meant it was tracking early but a tropical rain event in January saw 50-70mm fall across the region which pushed back harvest dates slightly - we thought the whites may suffer berry split and subsequent high disease pressure, the hard work from our Vineyard Managers coupled with the warm, dry conditions and fresh daily sea breezes resulted in no issues – another “lucky” vintage in Margaret River!Out of our main white varieties, Sauvignon Blanc stands out – with great aromatics, perfume and length of flavour. 

Winemaking

The fruit for this wine is sourced all over the Margaret River region to capture the array of distinct Sauvignon Blanc characters in the end wine. The grapes were harvested in the middle of the night, lightly pressed then fermented in cool temperatures to encourage aroma production, texture and overall varietal character. On the completion of fermentation, the batches were chilled, blended and lightly fined before being stabilised and filtered only once to produce a bottle ready wine. This minimal handling had helped retain the attractive primary fruit flavours and aromas
