About

This is a classic Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc Semillon with the intensity dialled up a notch or two.

Grown in Karidale, as the winemaking team says, “The Karridale subregion is home to the finest Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Margaret River. Crisp higher natural acids; aromatic citrus fruit profiles; extended slower ripening and more fruit intensity: what’s not to like?”

This and a little Semillon is fermented half in barrel and left on lees for five months to slowly build complexity.

James Halliday was very impressed with the 2016 awarding it 95 points and choosing it as part of his Top 100 Wines of 2016. One of the best value examples of this wine style getting around.

What It Tastes Like

“There’s more to this than meets the eye, both the bouquet and palate suggesting flavour augmentation by all or some of oak, skin contact and lees contact. The clever aspect is the uncertainty about which has been responsible: what is certain is the extra length and depth of the mouthfeel - or, in a word, its complexity.” - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
