Planted to the tranquil Shangri-La of a sun warmed slope in Yarra Valley, TarraWarra was established 1983 by the founders of the Sussan and Sportsgirl brands. Philanthropists and patrons of the arts, Mr and Mrs Besen, AO and AO respectively, took a highly aesthetic approach to the pursuit of viticulture. Healthy soils and happy fauna were the means to an end, good wine comes from a sound ecology, but great wine needs the inspiration of a holistic engagement with the arts. It is here at Healesville that habitues can savour the Sauvignon while immersing themselves amongst the work of our national masters. A costly collection of canvas by our merry Messrs Boyd and Whiteley, Drysdale, Brack and Pugh, presenting the most opulent environment, to sip and savour the ferments of fruit picked within a painter's eye view.

Mitchell's largest vineyard is at Watervale, a very bleak place in the middle of winter at pruning time. It is known by the vineyard workers as Alcatraz, a place to do penance in the cold, wind and rain of a Clare Valley winter. Alcatraz only ever yields minimal harvests, source of the most memorable vintages in our nation's.. These old clare valley vines are just getting better»
Returned servicemen from the Great War could look forward to government grants of pastoral freehold. West Australia's Willyabrup Valley was such a place, just a short walk from the balmy beaches of Indian Ocean, it offered the veterans excellent potential for agriculture. The fertile lands of Sussex Vale were originally established to animal husbandry by the discharged troopers, generations of livestock enriched the soils and it was astutely sown to vines in 1973. Fortuitously placed at the very heart of the Australian west's most illustrious estates, it continued to occupy the thoughts of neighbouring Howard Park's chief winemaker, until he acquired the property and relaunched a softly spoken range of the most exquisite wines. Aspirants of the blue blooded styles from Margaret River will be delighted, redolent reds.. A better block on hay shed hill»

Watershed Shades Sauvignon Semillon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
Watershed's vineyards were established within the dress circle of stately Margaret River wineries, at the intersection of Darch Road and Bussell Highway. The climes here are an idyll for holiday makers and alfresco living. They are also heaven sent for viticulture and world class wines. The universally appealing accord of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc is one of the stylistic marvels of Margaret River. Watershed is fresh and vibrant, offering tangy passionfruit and grapefruit characters, clean, lingering and crisp.
Watershed is one of the few major estates in Margaret River with a capacity to assemble the most equitable harvests of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Watershed's viticulturalists were responsible for the single largest initial vineyard planting in the region. With well over a hundred hectares under vine, Watershed is able to isolate the best sites for white grapes, resources which dwarf some of the region's largest boutique vineyards. Following a vintage determined by optimal levels of ripeness and the perfect ratios of fruit sugars to acid, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are crushed and inoculated, vinified at controlled temperatures, followed by assemblage into a classically fruit driven dry white.
Pale straw in the glass. Aromas of lime blossom, lychees and gooseberry, intense citrus, grapefruit and guava bouquets are complemented by the grassyness of Semillon. Fresh and vibrant palate, exhibiting luscious passionfruit characters, tropical fruit flavours leading to a crisp lingering finish. This quenching Margaret River white is deliciously ready to be enjoyed now, excellent in it's youth, a suitable companion to good food, particularly fried fishes or Asian faire.
