VINTAGE 2017: 94 Points - Halliday Magazine April/May 2017
"Margaret River does so well with these varieties, and offers them at such tempting prices they might as well have a monopoly on them. Judging a dozen or so becomes very difficult as they impart their message so clearly, their combined flavours so similar to each other. This wine, with its beautiful green colour, fits all the above".

2017 Pitchfork - Margaret River Semillion Sauvignon Blanc
The wine is unwooded, with fermentation occurring in stainless steel tanks and then bottled at an early age. A low temperature, protective regime was adopted during its production, thereby preserving the finer fruit characters of these aromatic varieties.
COLOUR: Brilliant appearance, pale straw with green hues.
NOSE: Classic lifted semillon and sauvignon blanc aromas. Lemon/lime, gooseberry, pine needles, green mango and passion fruit with distinctive grassy edge.
PALATE: Intensely flavoured, pristine fruit with a clean and zippy palate. Fresh fruit flavours of lemon, passionfruit and pineapple. The palate is long and lingering with a tight acidic backbone and clean dry finish.
