Established 1973, Woodlands of Wilyabrup were one of the first vineyards in Margaret River, planted with a view to emulating the great growths of Bordeaux. Recipients of the highly prestigious Jack Mann Memorial Medal and Wine Industry Lifetime Achievement Award for their tremendous vintages of all things Cabernet. Assembling the rich Medoc style blends are what Woodlands do best. Painstakingly crafted by hand, to challenge the primacy of the illustrious Chateaux de la rive gauche, very few vineyards yield the quality of fruit that merits vintaging into a statuesque wine dominated by the prettily fragrant Cabernet Franc. Woodlands were established from the ground up with a view to achieving limited harvests of the abstruse Bordeaux varietals, only a few hundred cases of good red wine per vintage. Two precious vineyards, located within the elite terroirs of Margaret River's Wilyabrup Valley, are dry grown and farmed through holistic regimens of old world..

Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Semillon Sauvignon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
For a wine that relies on lifted, zesty fruit notes as this one does, the final assembly sits very close to perfect. Ribbon Vale's fruit produces a different style to that grown at neighbouring Moss Wood. Sauvignon Blanc brings major aromaticness to the wine, the Semillon component contributes heightened flavour profiles. Ribbon Vale is vibrant and juicy, pristine and finer than most variants of the blend. Flavour builds in the glass before a finish that is refreshingly crisp with zippy acidity and an aftertaste that's long and fruitful, dry and lingering.

All fruit is hand picked, grapes are destemmed and chilled, pressings are kept separate and cold settled for two days. Juices are racked off lees and warmed to 18⁰C for inoculation with pure yeast culture. Batches are fermented to dryness, racked and adjusted for acidity and sulphur dioxide. Components are assembled and filled to a selection of 225 litres French oak barriques. After three months of age, the oaking adds palate richness and a measure of exciting minerality which beautifully frames the greener nature of Sauvignon Blanc. All parts are rack and returned into the finished wine at the end of October, bentonite fined for protein stability and sterile filtered before bottled.
Light to medium straw hue. Lifted fruit aromas of gooseberry, passionfruit, lychee, lemon sherbet and cheddar cheese - very bright and fresh. A palate of some impact, crisp acidity, juicy lemon, passionfruit and gooseberry flavours, showing full body and very clean finish, sans astringency. Great texture, long flavours, clean and fresh without any phenolics.
