"No tricks to the winemaking, simply cold-fermented in stainless steel with specially selected cultured yeast. Puts beyond doubt the symbiosis of Margaret River and SSB, the flavours inextricably woven together in a fluid tapestry of herb, citrus, guava and gooseberry framed by precise natural acidity. Great value."

Product Description:

"80% of the fruit for this blend was Estate grown, while the balance was sourced from mature vineyards in the Margaret River region. The 2014 vintage was built on a solid foundation of sub-soil moisture with excellent (above average) rainfall throughout the winter of 2013. The rainfall ceased almost completely from the end of November through to the end of March providing ideal growing conditions. Abundant Marri blossom leading up to, & during, harvest kept bird pressure very low, & yields were average for most varieties. The fine days & relatively cool nights of summer were perfect for whites allowing the wines to retain fragrant, juicy characters with deliciously crunchy natural acidity. The dry mild weather continued throughout March allowing the reds to attain full physiological maturity with wonderful flavour & tannin ripeness. In summary; 2014 was yet another excellent season, continuing the dream run of vintages in Margaret River over the last eight years! " Winery Notes
