TASTING NOTES

Appearance Vibrant pale straw with a green tinge.
Nose A distinct, alluring nose suggesting baked chicken and vegetable pie with warm herbed bread that evolves over a few minutes to reveal underlying paw paw, kiwi fruit and savoury herbs.
Palate The entrance is crisp and crunchy with a succulent mineral, mid-palate and a very long flavoursome finish. Hints of the dusty, savoury herb in the aroma are present, but it is powerful lime and blackcurrant that form the core of the wine, with subtle French oak spice and structure bringing an extra dimension of quality.

DESCRIPTION

Winemaker Comments: Semillon's citrus and floral notes compliment intense Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc with blackcurrant (yes, SB is the mother of Cabernet Sauvignon), sometimes passionfruit, and amazing savoury herbal tones. The wine's aromatic and textural complexity has also been enhanced by retaining extra solids in some of the juice parcels and fermenting a portion in new French oak barriques which bring a fragrant spice. A small contribution from Sauvignon Blanc fermented entirely on skins has once again added a unique savoury element to the nose and palate.
Vintage
DESCRIPTION
Moderate spring conditions at the end of 2015 helped establish a healthy fruitset and better yields than the previous two seasons. January temperatures were warm, interrupted by one rainfall event late in the month, great viticulture management, clean, well-trimmed canopies and subsequent warm weather prevented disease risk. White varieties were harvested throughout February with elegant flavours and bright natural acidity.
