Semillon Sauvignon Blanc Margaret River Western Australia
The legend of Howling Wolves is steeped in a philosphy of producing nothing but the finest wines from fruit grown within the superlative Willyabrup appellation of Margaret River. No detail has ever been overlooked in the winemaking process and no corners are cut in applying the most exacting standards of vinification. Initially established to process grapes and provide the very best service to local growers, Howling Wolves now collate the most exceptional parcels of Margaret River Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc to be vinified under their own label.
The Howling Wolves lair is a large, modern state of the art winery on seventeen picturesque hectares of rich, ochre soils shaded by tall stands of native trees, one of the largest in Western Australia. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from Churchview Estate and Allison Valley Vineyard in the prestigious Willyabrup sub region. Grapes are harvested throughout the cool of night, each parcel at optimal maturity, retaining the natural balance of flavours and acidity. Fruit is immediately processed, juices are clarified and cold settled before a vinification to choice strains of yeast. The wine is filtered and promptly bottled, capturing the fresh primary fruit flavours and aromas.
