Overview

Block 1 consists of some of the oldest Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes in Margaret River. On a steep gravelly slope these old dry-grown vines produce a very small crop of bright and varietally expressive Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc with a depth of flavour and intensity rarely seen in these varieties.

Expert Reviews

97 Points | James Halliday Wine Companion Pale straw-green; has more intensity and citrussy acidity than the ‘15 at this stage, the latter busy morphing from a newborn to adolescent. The ‘16 is a superb

young Block 1 with greatness now, or in five or 15 years’ time. Drink to 2028

Winery Tasting Notes

COLOUR: Pale straw colour with fresh green tinges.

NOSE: The bouquet is fresh and clean with classic grassy elements typical of this region but with a lemony minerality distinctive to this block. The nose is more complex than most SSB blends with an underlying toasty nuance.

PALATE: The palate is bright and fresh with vibrant citric, gooseberry and lychee-like flavours, all at a level of intensity greater than expected. The oak is almost impossible to detect other than it adds a textural dimension to what is normally a simple fresh and lively wine style. This wine has an amazing palate extension with the flavour lingering to a clean ultra dry finish.
