About The Wine
Brad Wehr and his Amato Vino label are responsible for some of the more creative and ‘out there’ wines around, but within his range also exists some excellent wines made in more traditional styles.
This Sauvignon Blanc is one such example, and I’ve got to say I really dig it. It’s Margaret River fruit as you’d expect, coming from a couple different sites in the central and southern parts of the region.
It’s zippy, fresh and fruit-driven, with barrel fermentation adding extra weight and texture. Nothing crazily complex, but lovely drinking and a great example of quality Margaret River Sauv Blanc.
What It Tastes Like
“Tropical aromas of passionfruit/pineapple and gooseberry/citrus lead the charge on the nose, while floral influences can be seen in lemongrass, green bean and some flinty minerality. Crisp acidity for freshness, yet balanced out by creaminess from the barrel-ferment time.” - Brad Wehr
91 points & special value star. “Two sources, both in the Wallcliffe district. Half fermented in stainless steel, half in old oak. It feels measured and composed with tutti-fruity flavours on the one hand, and gravelly/steely/grassy characters on the other. There’s a whisper of smokiness but it could be the power of suggestion as much as anything. In short, it’s a pretty handy wine.”
- James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
