Overview

Dry white blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon have their traditional home in Bordeaux on the south-western coast of France. Over the past few decades, the south-western regions of Western Australia have arguably claimed these blends as their own, primarily in a clean, fruit driven, refreshing style. This Dragonfly SBS has mostly been cool-fermented in stainless steel tanks in order to preserve and highlight the intensity of fresh tropical and citrus fruits and fragrant herbs that are the regional signatures of these varieties. A small portion (around 10%) of the blend was fermented in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barrels to add further aromatic complexity and a build some creamy texture into the palate.

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale straw with hints of green.

Aroma

Delicate florals (Jasmine? Frangipani?) and some bath salt minerality. Some tropical fruits, but less than normal - lime the dominant fruit. Snowpeas and fennel provide the greens.

Palate

Light and tangy with lime and grapefruit flavours. The texture is dry and quartzy with some spice and citrussy acid drawing out the finish.

Cellaring

It is probably best enjoyed as a young wine - within three years of vintage - when its vibrant aromatics and clean, fresh fruits are at their most expressive.

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Willow Bridge Estate is family owned and operated by principals Jeff and Vicki Dewar, who bought the picturesque 180-hectare hillside property in 1996 after an exhaustive search of the state for the ideal vineyard site from which to realize their shared vision of producing world class wines which are both opulent and accessible. The estate is located in a hidden jewel of an area known as the Ferguson Valley which, at that time, was home to only a few small vineyards. Immediately planting 60 hectares of vines and then building a state of the art winery (the first winery in the area) in time for their first vintage in 2000, established Willow Bridge as the pioneering estate of the area and demonstrated the family’s confidence in the property and resolve to see their vision become reality.

From the release of their very first wines, their efforts were quickly rewarded with critical acclaim, wine show success and most importantly, glowing feedback from wine lovers.
