The making of Dragonfly Sauvignon Blanc Semillon centres on capturing the fresh and alluring tropical and seasonal fruit flavours from the region.
Vibrant and refreshing in style, the Sauvignon Blanc is aromatic and crisp whilst the Semillon adds an extra dimension to the wine and depth to the palate. Winemaking technique adds texture and complexity to the depth of flavour.
Appealing passionfruit, fresh kiwi fruit and citrus, with moderate herbaceous notes.
Crisp and refreshing palate of lime zest and bright summer fruits , delicately balanced and a long fine finish.
Estate grown from the spectacular hillside vineyard in the Ferguson Valley of the Geographe wine region, fruit is sourced from our Forrest and Power blocks which were planted in 1998.
Soil is typically a deep layer of ironstone gravelly loam over red and yellow friable clay with slight westerly aspects at elevations of 220 to 250m above sea level.
Fresh, clear juice is fermented in tank to retain pristine fruit aromas and palate delicacy with a variety of cultured yeast.
Temperature is allowed to peak at 16 degrees celsius, but thereafter maintained at less than 15 degrees celsius.
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.
