"This small producer as made quite a name for its reds and yet this excellent early drinking white blend shows it can do something pretty flash with its whites as well. Tropical fruit flavours with a fresh zingy acid provide the basis for a good drinking wine. Crisp keen finish."Ray Jordan

Winery Profile

The Fuddling Cup vineyard began on a small pocket of land where Colin and Gail Higgins planted premium Cabernet Sauvignon vines in the Tuart sandy loam soil of Geographe, South Western Australia near Capel within sight of the ocean in 2000. Although our plantings were new, award winning Cabernet has been grown in the vicinity for almost 30 years. In response to many requests, in late 2009, Fuddling Cup added a small production of white wine to complement our Cabernet. This wine — a Semillon Sauvignon Blanc — is made from grapes sourced in the Margaret River Region. We have worked with our winemaker Simon Ding to produce a wonderfully fresh wine. Subtle complexity has been added by fermenting a little of the Sauvignon Blanc component in new French oak without detracting from the fruit driven style for which Margaret River has become renowned.
