Tasting Notes
COLOUR Brilliant straw green. NOSE A fragrant, bright perfume expressing pineapple, mandarin and lemon scented gum with a hint of freshly cut parsley bringing a subtle herbal element. PALATE A refreshing palate with a clean, crisp opening and mid palate leading to a succulent, mouth-watering finish. Delivers a generous volume of citrus, rockmelon and guava flavours balanced by a driving natural acidity that sustains the fruit weight effortlessly. A rewarding drink-alone or capable of matching light to medium richness cuisine.
Winemaker Notes
WINEMAKER'S NOTES Semillon's citrus and floral notes are complemented by the tropical passionfruit aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc. These varieties are picked at reasonably low baume, capturing fine high-note aromas, crisp primary fruit flavours and good acid structure. The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc juices are then fermented under cool conditions using specially selected yeasts to ensure the varietal characters are accentuated. This wine was fermented without the use of oak for pure fruit expression.

VINTAGE DESCRIPTION

Moderate spring conditions at the end of 2015 helped establish a healthy fruitset and better yields than the previous two seasons. January temperatures were warm, interrupted by one rainfall event late in the month, great viticulture management, clean, well-trimmed canopies and subsequent warm weather prevented disease risk. White varieties were harvested throughout February with elegant flavours and bright natural acidity

    Home Beautiful - Liz O'Connell

    The Margaret River blend of sauvignon blanc and semillon is as West Australian as a blinding hot day at the beach. It's crisp and fruity all at once, with lovely notes of summer citrus and guava. Serve this classic very cold with fun and festive friends.
