VINEYARD & WINEMAKING

2018 delivered excellent growing conditions, with winter and spring being reasonably dry and summer holding slightly cooler temperatures.

As the weeks, months and years pass, we believe 2018 will be heralded as one of the great, Great Southern vintages.

The Great Southern wine region is a premier wine growing region of Western Australia. The botrytised gewürztraminer and chardonnay grapes were picked in March 2018. The wine was picked and gently de-stemmed and had skin contact for 5 days. It was then pressed and settled, allowing a wild yeast fermentation to start, the fermentation ceased at 140 grams per litre. The wine was bottled in July 2018. 

THE WINE

The wine displays aromas of apricot, mandarin and dried orange peel. It is medium bodied, with a richness and textured mouthfeel yet with a delicacy at the same time. It has complexity and length of flavour with a good acidity to finish.

I'm usually not a fan of Botrytis wines from Western Australia (or anywhere other than Sauternes really) as I find they're often too sweet and sickly.

This, however, is a wonderful exception. Brilliantly balanced on the palate and not too thick in the mouth, with decent acid helping cut through. Perhaps it's because they've avoided Semillon? Whatever the reason, very happy to have a couple of these in my wine fridge.
