vintage 

2018 was an extraordinary vintage in Margaret River, with wet winter months followed by a warm spring to promote budburst and a dry early summer perfect for fruit set. Isolated heavy rain then swelled the fruit, with a beautiful late summer of warm days and cool nights; ideal conditions for accentuating the flavour, ripeness and acid balance of the grapes.

winemaking

Produced from vineyards across the region, our Sauvignon Blanc is unique in that it captures the array of fruit characters from across Margaret River. All the fruit was picked in the cool of the night to retain freshness and aromatic intensity. Following gentle pressing and temperature-controlled fermentation, the wine was blended and filtered only once. This minimal handling has helped to retain the attractive primary fruit flavours and aromas so critical to our style.
