Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
The classically dry Margaret River style, though pleasingly not completely dry, Forester Estate is saturated with fully ripe, rich fruit, unfettered by any oak. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from neighbouring properties in the northern Yallingup sub region of Margaret River. Direct input from Forester's viticulturist ensures well balanced canopies and crops are grown for this ripe and judiciously unwooded white. A highly regional, vital white wine that goes down easy with seafood, approachable and satisfying, innately suited to good Al fresco cuisine.
A splendid component of Semillon gives this wine plenty of strong regional citrus and herbaceous characters. Modern white winemaking techniques are employed, temperature control is considered critical from the moment the fruit reaches the winery. Grapes are destemmed and crushed, then must chilled and pressed off skins in a very short space of time. The must is cold settled for two to three days before being racked and clarified into fermenters, a range of specially selected yeasts are employed. A small portion of oak barrel ferments and maturation are employed to add texture and complexity, achieving a flavoursome young white in the inimitable Forester style. Alcohol 13.0%
