Overview

This wine is inspired by a recent visit to the Margaret River wine region in Western Australia. As a region there are many similarities to Hawkes Bay: maritime climate, similar temperatures and varietal mix planted. I’m sure the Margaret River winemakers were originally inspired by white Bordeaux. I’ve been in turn inspired by the improvement, not the original.

Winery Tasting Notes

Aroma

Semillon perhaps contributes more to the youthful impression than Sauvignon Blanc does. Certainly on the nose floral notes and citrus peel lift the wine.

Palate

On the palate Sauvignon Blanc dominates with its tropical melon richness and weight. As the wine ages I would expect it to look flinty, as the primary floral notes give way, and ‘honey-up’ as the wine takes on time. Don’t judge this wine too early, its best years are ahead.
