2019 Petit Lot Semillon Sauvignon Blanc (Limited Stock)
192 cases produced
This wine is our somewhat more layered and complex take on Margaret River’s classic white blend. As the dominant variety, Semillon makes up 68% proportion of the blend. The focus with this wine is on picking the grapes when the vineyard’s canopy is in good condition and the juice’s natural acidity still high. The Semillon component comes from our main vineyard planted on an Ironstone/laterite ridge and contributes beautiful grassy, citrus characters to the blend. The Sauvignon Blanc (27%) on the other hand was grown in soil with a greater clay/quartz component, providing fresh and zesty aromatics and a mineral acidity to the final blend. A small proportion of Chardonnay (5%) brings an unapparelled degree of depth. All components have been fermented with natural yeasts and racked to new French barriques for 9 months, providing a texture and complexity to the wine, whilst still delivering a freshness on the mid palate. A complex textural wine that will age gracefully for 5+ years and will develop richness, and a subtle toasty quality with time in the bottle.
