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 com-plexity to the depth of flavour.
Punchy aromatics of passionfruit and pomegranate, fresh green herbs and citrus.
Flavoursome and generous passionfruit and green melon finishing with a clean and long chalky mineral 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.
The season for the Geographe wine region was cool and dry. The five months until the end of January had yielded little rain, about 70mm less than the same period last year
The cooler weather also disrupted flowering and fruit set resulting in much smaller bunch sizes and high incidence of hen and chicken, especially in Chardonnay.
The January 2019 average temperature of 21.3 was two degrees Celsius lower than the 23.3 of 2016. Ideal weather for stunning white wines.
