The classically dry and blissfully aromatic white from Amberley Estate vineyards on Margaret River. Ripe, fully compatible parcels of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes are selected, promptly harvested throughout the cool of night to capture and retain freshness. Gentle handling in the winery serves to preserve the bright, vibrant flavours of grapes ripening in the vineyard. Following the crush and inoculation to choice yeasts, juices are racked and vinified at cooler temperatures in controlled fermenters. Upon completion, parcels are kept for a term on sedimentery lees to enrich the palate while enhancing texture and complexity, followed by assemblage and light fining into bottle.
Pale straw with green hues. Highly aromatic, the nose displays the classic characteristics of cut grass and lime leaf, lemongrass and slatey hay. The palate bursts with crisp and lively flavours of granny smith, kiwifruits and citrus zest. Refreshing acidity is complemented by fruit sweetness, citrus mineral characters and excellent length. Splendid alongside salt and pepper squid or your favourite cheese.
