The Winemakers Range is all about delivering quite simply the best Western Australian wine at the best price. Quite simply, “Bang for your buck!” These wines are a blend of both the Margaret River and Swan Valley regions. In other words we have the riper, richer notes from the Swan with the cooler climate, more elegant and sophisticated characters from Margaret River. There are no lashings of oak and winemaking artefact here, just great fruit-driven wines from vines up to fifty years of age. These wines are all about balance, harmony and drinkability without burning a hole in your purse or wallet! So go on, have a crack and let us know the outcome! As always, enjoy in moderation.
Peter, Richard and the picking crew were again out in the dark during February to harvest all of these magnificent grapes in the cool of night. Sandy then drove them to the winery. Greg tipped them into the crusher, Troy pumped them through the chiller, into the press and the juice then went straight into a stainless steel tank for fermentation. Four weeks later, hey presto, white wine! We did manage to filter this wine on the way to bottle, just to make sure it was squeaky clean.
Sauvignon Blanc Semillon and Verdelho
Floral, musk like notes which flow into the palate.
This wine is all about the fruit – passionfruit, nashi pears and apples. There’s citrus here as well – candied lemons and a bit of orange blossom. This wine has that drinkability factor – it’s just one of those wines that you think you’ll only have a glass, then the next thing you know the bottle is gone. Drink now – throw in an ice cube or two for the best results. Cheers to those relaxing afternoons!
The 2020 vintage will be remembered by all for nothing to do with the grapes. Some virus landed in WA right as the grapes were ready to harvest. Thankfully we got through with no cases and thus no shutdowns. Apart from that, the grapes just did their thing. Another great year for them.
