    Wine overview

    • Variety
      86.9% Sauvignon Blanc, 13.1% Semillon
    • Region
      87% Margaret River and 13% Blackwood Valley
    • Cellaring
      Now and over the next 3 years as Semillon’s structural contribution allows this regional blend to blossom.

    This signature Margaret River blend offers immediate enjoyment and is a worthy follow-up to the National Trophy winning wine from 2015.  A riot of tropical, citrus and stonefruit flavours tempt and excite the nose and a clean line of vibrant natural acidity carries these flavours across the palate to a refreshing finish.

    Several vineyard sites contribute to this blend. Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the southern part of the region in order to capture strong varietal intensity and high natural acidity. Semillon is more broadly sourced from the south and centre of the region to capture the full spectrum of ripe fruit flavours on offer.

    Technical Notes



    Winemaking

    Each individual vineyard block that contributes to the Miamup Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is vinified separately. Most batches are cool fermented in stainless steel to maximize varietal character and fruit flavour. Special batches are hand-picked, whole fruit pressed and fermented in oak to add complexity and texture.
    The wine is bottled in June of the vintage year, in time for a spring release.
