Winemaking notes
Grown in the central Willyabrup subregion of Margaret River. The fruit for this wine washarvested in the cool of the night using mechanical harvesters. The grapes were crushed and lightly pressed under inert conditions as to avoid any extraction of harsh phenolics, and oxidation. Following settling, wines were racked, warmed and inoculated for ferment in stainless steel vessels. Combinations of yeasts were used to enhance the varietal character and to produce fresh, fruity, clean wines. The ferments were held at a cool temperature of around 16-17°C and lasted on average for 12 days. Once settled the wines were racked off gross lees and the individual components assessed and blended. The blend was given a light fining before being filtered andprepared for bottling.

Tasting Note
Loaded with aromas of tropical fruits, guava, passionfruit and freshly cut grass. A fresh, fruity and lively palate.

Serving Suggestions
Salmon steak with coriander and lemon pilau rice.
