Overview

Tight and crisp but with abundant fruit weight, this wine shows all the hallmarks of this wonderful Margaret River blend.

The bright citrus and floral characters from the nose carry through to the palate with the Semillon component providing both elegance and texture.

Gooseberry and passionfruit from the Sauvignon Blanc, hints of ripe fleshy rockmelon from the Chardonnay along with the fresh minerally acidity provides length and finish to the wine. This wine shows incredible fruit weight and balance.
