The temperate maritime region of Margaret River stretches a north to south distance of 100kms, and is bound by oceans on three sides. Along this substantial stretch of land, subtle climatic differences exist over the five physiographic regions and fifteen diverse land form systems of the Leeuwin Naturaliste area. Such diversity of sites has produced an extensive array of varietal expressions in both Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. From this treasure trove of diversity and choice, the region’s signature blend has evolved.
 
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.

Tasting Notes

Primary fruit aromas of fresh and lightly poached citrus are gently spiced with vanilla bean and perfumed with lemon myrtle and black currant. The palate's meld of many fruit flavours is enriched with a lemon curd richness and textured with a lime zest and chalk like minerality to finish

Food Pairing

Perfect alongside a Persian fetta, zucchini and mint tart.
