    The 2018 Watson Family Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is produced from an established vineyard in the Wilyabrup Valley, the newly-designated sub-region of Margaret River. 2018 was an absolutely fantastic vintage. Near-perfect fine conditions persisted throughout the region from mid-December all the way through to the end of harvest. The resultant fruit produced wines of exceptional flavour and robust acidity. The grapes for this wine were picked and chilled before being gently pressed and settled. After being racked the must was fermented in stainless steel, with a small percentage fermented “wild” in barrel to enhance balance and complexity. We also experimented with 10% of the wine fermented with a high solids contact, for enhanced mouth feel and aromatics.The wine is an intense pale straw colour. The nose features elements of lime and citrus, with toasty barrel ferment notes and a hint of cut grass. The palate is brilliantly clean and lively – with the citrus of the nose mingling with fresh nectarines, white peach, and pear. Barrel ferment notes provide a lovely density and weight, while the finish is bright and mineral.

    Region

    If you haven't visited, you must. A rustic, deliciously salty, native eucalypt forest framed version of Australian coastal paradise. Whatever is farmed and harvested here, both from land or sea, is inevitably healthy, fresh and richly flavoured - idiosyncratic to this corner of Australia. Merely 3 hours drive south of Western Australia's capital Perth, the Margaret River wine region is a naturally beautiful area bordered by the Indian ocean which is a major geographic influence - a natural gem for keeping the grapes balanced and not over-ripe. This region produces some of the most profound & exciting wines in the world - genuinely world class. Producers here are farming and crafting wines in all sorts of styles worthy of discovering - traditional and age worthy to avant-garde and tumbler bound. Cabernet Sauvignon here is exceptional. Look to producers such as Cullen, Pierro, Si Vintners, (some new trendy, some the highest quality etc..). Local Knowledge: Drink at Settlers Tavern - one of the most exceptional wine list in the country.
