About The Wine

Margaret River is the home of the "Aussie White Bordeaux", the classic Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Bruce Dukes makes one of the best in the area.

The Discovery is 'classic' in the best possible way. As Bruce describes, "Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are captured to highlight their attractiveness in youth." and that freshness is complimented by the soft savoury undertones of the portion which has been barrel fermented.

The classics are classic for a reason.

This is a top value example from this famous region.

Critic Reviews

Halliday Wine Companion

"Comprised of two-thirds sauvignon blanc, one-third semillon, one-third of the blend fermented and aged for 2 months on lees in seasoned French oak. Cool, green-tinged fruit, richer tropical characters and minerality all play a part here, which is exactly as the winemaker intended, and it's an excellent result. There's freshness and complexity, attractive mouthfeel and length of flavour, and most importantly an easy, satisfying drinkability. Expertly made." - Steven Creber (Halliday Wine Companion)
