2012 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
The colour is pale straw green. The aroma is zingy and fresh with hints of lime and some tropical overtones. The palate shows vibrant tropical fruits and citrus, with a tremendous initial lift of passionfruit with a long and persistent finish. Overall a finely honed style for which Margaret River is justly famous.
The 2012 growing season was dominated by a succession of heat waves post new year. Fortunately this was preceded by a good winter and spring giving rise to good canopy development and soil moisture levels.
Small parcels of fruit were carefully selected from several diverse sites across the northern end ofMargaretRiver. The vines are mostly trained to simple vertical trellis and soils range from fine sandy loams to ironstone derived gravels.
The wine was fermented with natural yeasts following cold processing and juice clarification. After extended lees contact in tank to build texture and complexity the final blend was assembled, fined and bottled.
