Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are captured to highlight their attractiveness in its youth. Complex layered and blended white. Sauvignon offering lifted fragrances of gooseberry and lychee, with Semillon offering fig, white grapefruit and a mineral component. The portion of barrel fermentation introduces exotic spice and textural harmonisation.
Bruce Dukes says that ’18 was one of Margaret River’s greatest years for white wines, and this wine shows why. A 66/34% blend, one-third fermented and matured in used French oak to build mouthfeel and structure, the balance held in stainless steel. And it does have its cake and eat it, with both fruit flavours and texture enhanced. 95 points – James Halliday, Halliday Wine Companion 2020
