Region

Margaret River


Vineyards

Two exceptional vineyards from Witchcliffe and Karridale were selected for this wine. We chose these sub-regions because their position captures the cooling influence of the Southern and Indian Oceans, and delivers wines with subtlety and elegance.


Season

2010 was a brilliant vintage for Margaret River white varieties, a relatively dry spring ensuring even flowering and fruit set. The summer period was warm and the sunny conditions accelerated ripening, which allowed picking to occur at low baume combined with great acid balance.


Harvest Date

Early March 2011.


Winemaking

We follow the practices of hand picking and machine harvesting during the cool of the night in order to maintain optimal fruit integrity. Destemming, crushing and pressing are performed under cool gentle conditions. The juice is fermented at 12-13 degrees to preserve its freshness. Post primary ferment the wine is prepared for bottling as quickly as possible and sent to bottle to lock in and preserve those fresh fruit characters.

Tasting Notes

This wine expresses very clean fresh and crisp characters. Aromas of passionfruit and pear and a lively crisp palate of lime and green apples are the marks of this classic Margaret River blend.
