2020 Trait Field Blend

Margaret River, WA

A layered, complex and flavour driven Sauvignon Blanc blend from Margaret River.




About the Wine

It seems like we're all getting over our break up with Sauvignon Blanc. Plenty of producers are now making wines which focus so much less on overt fruitiness and more on texture and weight. This field blend, made from Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay and Chenin Blanc is a great example. Each variety lends something here, but the star is good ol' Savvy Bee.

Semillon and Chardonnay provide great structure here and fill out the palate, while Chenin's natural acid give a great backbone to the wine. The Savvy wholeheartedly provides the flavour, but it's not as tropical as you'd think. With 50% of the wine seeing six months in barrel, there is a natural ease to this. Softly textured, with green herbs, gentle flavours passion fruit, lemons and delicate creaminess. It's all just so balanced - neither too much nor too little. It's in that Goldilocks zone.

About Trait

It may be pronounced Traits, but it's spelt Truyts. Theo Truyts is a Lesothian ex-pat, who worked with several South African wineries before coming to Margaret River. Clare Trythall is a British ex-pat who works as an emergency doctor. Her attention to detail definitely keeps Theo on the straight and narrow, making her the best 'behind-the-scenes' manager a winemaker could have.

The couple met in 2013 and, six years later, Theo was offered management of a site he had worked with during his early years in Australia. The vineyard was deemed 'un-machineable' and was in danger of being left to the elements. Ever decreasing yields? Too costly to run? Challenge accepted.

The pair spent 2019 revitalising the vineyard between their day jobs and new child. The site can only be tended to by hand, but the fruit is immaculate. The resulting wines can only be seen as testaments to their dedication, care and passion.

Critic Reviews

The Wine Front

"Big licks of green herb, grassiness rolled through the juicier, plumper, just ripe stone fruit juices. It conflicts with itself, kind of green gauge, kind of fruity, but texture rolls everything together, a powdery, chalky drawl with crisp, cool acidity helping things along. It’s a complex white, lots going on, and very refreshing, Good mojo here." Campbell Mattinson

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you.
