The wine is unwooded, with fermentation occurring in stainless steel tanks and then bottled at an early age. A low temperature, protective regime was adopted during its production, thereby preserving the finer fruit characters of these aromatic varieties.

HIGHLY regarded Margaret River winemaker Michael Kerrigan says his well-priced Pitchfork range offers “flavour and depth greater than the wine price may suggest”. He’s spot-on with this crisp summery white. It opens with a surge of zesty lime, fruit salad and grassy aromas, following up with a clean, appetising palate. Ralph Kyte-Powell The Age, Epicure.
Pale quartz; a clean and crisp bouquet, with the herbaceous characters that also drive the palate, joined there by a touch of tropical fruit, the finish with bright acidity.
Rating 90 - James Halliday, Austarlian Wine Companion (SEP/2011)
Winery Tasting Notes
Brilliant appearance, pale straw with green hues.
Classic lifted Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc aromas. Lemon/lime, gooseberry, pine needles, green mango and passion fruit with distinctive grassy edge.
Intensely flavoured, clean and zippy palate. Fresh fruit flavours of lemon, passionfruit and pineapple. The palate is long and lingering with a tight acidic backbone and clean dry finish.
