Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
White citrus flowers complement the striking green apple and honeysuckle aromatics. Delicious mouthfilling palate, medium bodied and soft with flavours of white peach and crispy apple skin.
Vineyard Notes
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from Forrest block planted in 1998. Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam over red and yellow friable clay with slight easterly aspects at elevations of 220 to 250m above sea level.
Production Notes
Clean fresh juice fermented in tank to retain freshness and bright fruit aromatics. Winemakers aim to capture the pure Chenin Blanc varietal character. Tank fermentation is maintained at less than 15 degrees celsius, and at ferment completion the wine is cleaned up and bottled.
Winemaker Notes
Solid Winter rains were followed by a wonderfully warm Spring in 2017 heralding encouraging conditions for Vintage 2018 and indeed led to a long even Indian Summer. One rain event in mid January (35mm) was a blessing, and from then on vintage was dictated by long warm and dry days. Yield in 2018 is at or just below average within the region, The south west of western Australia also had one of the strongest displays of Marri bloom that I can recall, allowing crops to ripen without bird pressure.
