Sauvignon Blanc Margaret River Western Australia
The Amberley Estate property was primarily the subject of a detailed soil, climate and aspect analysis before any planting of vines. The growing seasons here foster a healthy crop with ample foliage, delivering fruit in excellent condition. Sauvignon Blanc in particular develops stimulating flavours and fragrant aromas, abundant with vibrant herbaceous and vegetable characters, kept juicy by a crisp natural acidity.
One can catch a glimpse of Geographe Bay through the valley at the centre of Amberley Estate, protected from westerly winds by towering Jarrahs and steep slopes. The choicest parcels of Sauvignon Blanc are selected from the estate vineyards along Margaret River, harvested throughout the cool of night to maximise freshness. A gentle handling in the winery ensures the bright, vibrant fruit flavours are retained. Juices are racked and vinified in controlled fermenters at cooler temperatures. Upon completion, components are held on lees to enrich the palate while enhancing texture and complexity. The final wine is then assembled, fined and stabilised for bottling.
Pale straw hue with green tinges. Fresh aromas of passionfruit, lemon zest and lime are complemented by hints of nettle and jasmine. A mouthfilling wine with a generous and textured palate, flavours of lemon zest and hints of citrus blossom. An ideal combination of freshness and fruit sweetness balanced by crisp, citrus acidity. Enjoy with baked barramundi on a medley of steamed vegetables.
