The Bussell name is famously entrenched in Margaret River history. In 1876 as a 16 year old, the heroic Grace Bussell was involved in the rescue of the sinking SS Georgette. She was awarded the Royal Humane Society’s silver medal. She later married Frederick Drake- Bockman, who served as Surveyor General from 1915 to 1917, with whom she had seven children. The picturesque townships of Gracetown and Lake Grace were named after her by her husband.

Winery Tasting Notes
The Bussell Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is all about purity of fruit and the classic varietal attributes that are unique to Margaret River.
Lemon green in colour
Lifted vibrant aromas which are full of herbaceous green fruits, reminiscent of snow peas, zesty lime and grapefruit.
The palate is beautifully integrated with fresh passionfruit, lime and citrus all perfectly balanced with a linear backbone of zesty lemon curd from the Semillon. The small portion of barrel fermented Semillon has added a texture and depth to the mid-palate. The crisp, clean, distinctive fruit combined with the natural acidity give this wine considerable structure and length.
Enjoy with Scallops, Butter Poached Ocean Trout and Lobster Terrine.
