Sauvignon Blanc Margaret River Western Australia
A universally appealing expression of Margaret River, the immensely popular Georgiana is pure Sauvignon Blanc, fashioned with the emphasis on style, freshness and vitality. Distinctively textural on the palate with bright and revitalizing, crunchy orchard fruit acidity, striking the perfect balance for the consumate summer white. Georgiana loves dining out on piquant Asian cuisine or a fresh Fritto Misto but she's equally content at home with shucked oysters and cheesey melts.
The lion's share of fruit comes from the cooler southern half of Margaret River, a major component from the estate Chapman Brook property. Every effort is made to promote the clean aromatics and punchy citrus characters of Sauvignon Blanc. Various canopy management methods are employed, the objective being to maximise fruit flavour development. The soils of these vineyards are geologically ancient, free draining sandy loams with a high percentage of lateritic gravel. Fruit is harvested throughout the night to take advantage of the cooler temperatures, followed by a brisk vinification in fermenters to retain freshness. The finished wine is assembled after a term on lees to infuse texture and enhance complexity.
Pale straw with green hues. Vibrant white peach, passionfruit, bouquets of guava and freshly cut lime, elderflower and hints of blackcurrant. Lively and lifted citrus fruits with delicate texture showcase a full flavoured and fresh palate. A touch of lemon curd and honeysuckle provides lovely complexity. Match with pan seared snapper fillets under Thai dressing.
