Overview

The classic white blend of the Southwest, but not as we generally know it. Lashings of tropical and citrus fruit, but with extra texture, depth, and funk.

Expert Reviews

Estate-grown on contiguous blocks; hand-picked, whole bunch-pressed, wild yeast-fermented in French oak, plus 9 months maturation in that oak. The approach has worked very well, giving the best of both worlds; the texture is a significant part of the wine, but so is the vibrant mix of citrus and tropical fruits. James Halliday, Rating 95, 29th July 2014

Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Pale green with hints of straw.

Aroma

Lemon pith, funky tropical holiday fruits and florals, woodsmoke, seaspray and beeswax.

Palate

Fine and fresh, but with a creamy texture. The fruits and florals from the nose all come through, as do more edgy, mineral elements, all of which seems to be coated with a lovely, soft, creamy layer. A twist of citrussy acidity draws out the finish and cleanses the palate - making it ready for more.

Cellaring Potential

Drinking well now, but should reward cellaring to at least 2020 for those who enjoy toasty mature whites in this ilk.

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.
