Harvests of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are selected from vineyards at Pemberton, Great Southern and Margaret River. Fruit is crushed with minimal sulphur and chilled prior to pressing. Free run juices are kept separate and pressings fined to remove phenolic compounds. After a period of cold settling, juices were racked and filtered, followed by inoculation through choice yeasts and cool tank vinification at a steady rate for two to three weeks, the temperatures closely monitored and controlled. Upon completion, the components were racked and the final assemblage determined, promptly followed by an early bottling to retain freshness.
Pale straw yellow hues. Highly aromatic style exhibiting tropical notes with subtle citrus and fresh grass aromas. A vibrant and flavoursome palate combining the ripe, textural elements of Semillon with lighter refreshing Sauvignon Blanc characters. Stone fruit flavours, citrus notes and refreshing acidity combine to give the wine a clean, moreish finish.
