Hand-Stamped Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2015
- Vegan Suitable
- No Added Preservative
RegionGreat Southern, WA
Made in the style of an orange wine, skin contact gives this warming winter white its alluring colour rich coppery colour. Pull a chair up by the fire and enjoy the aromas of minerality and the inviting citrus and spice of a pomander ball… think; orange, mandarin and cloves. Yum! Texture and mouthfeel are the first things you notice when you taste. It’s mouth filling, and if I do say so, pretty moreish for a wine at this price. As an aged preservative free wine there are the expected honeyed flavours and smooth viscosity, however white pepper, herbaceous fennel flavours and a balanced acid line keep this vino fresh and inviting. Great with a food.

ORGANIC & BIODYNAMIC PRACTICES SINCE 2008
Tasting Notes from the winery:
Background: Skin contact, wild ferment, lees stirring, a portion aged in both barrel and tank for 12 months prior to bottling. Zero so2 the whole way.
"We utilise natural farming techniques, and are working towards our 5 year goal of farmimg our land 100% sustainably.. this is becoming as much of a passion to us as grapegrowing and winemaking! We began using Biodynamic preparations in Winter 2008 and will continue to do so as positive signs have been observed in the vineyard.
To ensure our fruit is of the best quality many cultural practices are followed throughout the growing season. Shoot thinning, positioning, leaf plucking and bunch thinning are all applied to achieve a balanced vine and allow sunlight into the canopy to slowly ripen our fruit and develop the flavours unique to our site. All of these tasks are done by human hand (as opposed to machine) to ensure a precision result."
