TECHNICAL NOTES

Region: Margaret River

Vintage notes: The 2017 vintage was a cool weather -wise and quite late. It has been a very good year for whites. Flavours are at the aromatic / vegetal end of the spectrum together with some refreshing acidity. As it would happen, and despite some well justified concerns during the middle of the vintage , we were subjected to a long Indian summer after Easter, seeing reds ripen fully.

Composition: 100% Sauvignon Blanc

Winemaking: Hand-picked fruit was chilled overnight and whole bunch pressed and the resultant unclarified juice was allowed to ferment completely naturally with the only intervention being temperature control of the ferment. A light oak treatment together with some aging on gross lees in stainless steel. No sulphur was added whatsoever until the wine was prepared for bottling.

pH: 3.20

Acidity: 6.56 g/l

Residual sugar: Dry

Closure: Screwcap
