Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

“Quality wines are made in the vineyard.” While wine making can have positive input, having premium quality fruit is essential. This is why we are so fortunate at Driftwood to be located in one of the greatest viticultural areas in the world. We are able to source super premium fruit year in year out.With premium quality fruit, wine making philosophy is all about protecting and expressing the qualities that we find in the grapes, so that the wine lover can enjoy the flavours of Margaret River. The wine styles that are produced can be broken down to two major categories, un-wooded and wooded. Un- wooded wines are made fresh and clean usually from aromatic varieties such as Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. When making these wines we use a more aromatic yeast types and keep our fermentation temperatures cool. This helps protect the fruit flavours and aromatic characters. The wine is bottled within the year of its vintage using a screw cap.Wooded wines tend to more complex in nature and French and American oak is used to add to the complexity of the wine. Wines that typically receive oak treatment are Red varieties and Chardonnay. While oak can greatly enhance and complement great fruit we are always mindful that it must never dominate, it is all about balance.
