Overview

In Margaret River the Semillon exhibits the same grassiness on the nose and front palate that we have come to expect from Sauvignon Blanc. It gives weight to the middle palate, whilst the Sauvignon, when properly ripe as in this wine, gives generous fruit salad flavours.

This wine has the depth of fruit to project its flavours without assistance from residual sugar, and is therefore dry.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma/Palate

A bombshell of passionfruit and other tropical fruits on the nose and front palate. Long palate, crisp dry , delicate finish.

Cellaring

We recommend it as a lovely fresh, crisp dry white for early consumption, but it will soften in the cellar over 2 - 5 years, and take on some of the honeyed flavours which develop in aged Margaret River Semillon.

Winery Profile

The Dunsborough Hills collection of Western Australian table wines have two defining styles - whites which are essentially dry, relying on fruit rather than sugar to drive flavour, and reds where oak is restrained and once again the fruit dominates the wine.

Most of the fruit is sourced from four vineyards in the Margaret River region. In 1995 and 1996, 50 acres were planted to Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon and Shiraz. In 1997 a further 50 acres was planted, more Shiraz and Semillon, plus Merlot, and Cabernet Sauvignon. Malbec and Merlot were planted in 1998. Verdelho and additional Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from Willyabrup, in the north of the Margaret River region.

Viticulture is carried out with one objective - to grow fruit of the highest quality. Yields are kept low so as to get maximum flavour intensity. Pest control for slugs, snails and beetles is done by chickens and ducks, minimising the use of chemical sprays.

The wines are made at two wineries in Margaret River - Evans and Tate (Richard Rowe), and Flying Fish Cove. Some reds are crushed, chilled and tankered by road train to Watervale, SA, where David O'Leary makes the wine.
