Margaret River may well be the home of SSB’s / SBS’s, however in 2019 we continued our quest in showing off a single varietal Sauvignon Blanc that expresses the environment where it comes from.
This vintage, we decided to capture the savoury crunchiness that the southern fruit can deliver. The resultant wine is vibrant, savoury, and crunchy with some oak sophistication we know you (and many others) will enjoy.
As our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc is all about capturing the southern expressions of Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc, the vineyard selection was critical to making a balanced, ultra-fresh style without losing any aromatics and the sophistication.
For this wine we sourced fruit from the Wallcliffe and Karridale sub-regions of Margret River. These two southerly sub-regions generally allow for additional hang time for flavour development and capture more herbaceous notes as opposed to the tropically driven fruit you get from the northern sub-regions.
Our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc uses a base of fruit from the Wilyabrup subregion which displays lovely aromatics and stonefruit on the palate. This base is supported by a portion of cooler climate Karridale fruit providing a balance of crunchiness.
In addition, a portion of barrel fermented fruit inoculated with a wild yeast strain was blended through to provide a hint of flinty aromatics and some texture.
Pale straw colour with a greenish hue.
This wine has a delicate balance of herbal and leafy notes from the cooler southern sub-regions. The nose exhibits vibrant aromas, with hints of freshly mown grass and dried herbs generating a unique freshness.
Sauvignon Blanc has excellent flavour and structure and a good natural balance of acidity and sugar, with crunchy flavours of crisp gooseberry. Our 2019 Sauvignon Blanc uses a base of fruit from the Wilyabrup subregion which displays lovely aromatics and stonefruit on the palate.
We aim for minimal intervention to let the fruit express itself, yet there are certain things we do need to maintain the quality and integrity of this wine. We’ve added minimal sulphites to stabilise the wine and ensure its shelf life. It has also been fined with the aid of skim milk products or Isinglass to remove harsh phenolic compounds. We use this method as opposed to other by-products as it is extremely gentle in nature and does not strip flavour nor character from the wine, creating a final, high quality polish.
