The Witchcliffe subregion in southern Margaret River is far cooler than the northern regions, perfect for austere apple and citrus flavours melding with the small portion of oak fermentation to create a serious Sauvignon Blanc. Beautifully balanced acid, fruit weight and sugars make this an exciting wine for today and a few years time.
Intensely aromatic and instantly appealing, the bouquet shows green rockmelon, jalapeno, kaffir lime and lemon peel aromas, leading to a concentrated palate that's juicy and lively. The wine offers terrific fruit purity and vibrancy backed by textural mouthfeel and racy acidity, finishing impressively long and attractive. Drink: Now to 2026.

Pale to medium-straw colour. A nose of lemon pith, oyster-shell and Thai basil. Super-bright and fresh palate. Simple citrus fruit with a seashell minerality. A great acid line keeps it zippy and zingy. The finish shows a good tension of fruit sweetness and some phenolic crunch. Bright to the end.
