Winemaker Notes
Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes were machine harvested in the cool of night before transporting to the winery for processing. The fruit was destemmed before gentle pressing to tank and the juice allowed to cold settle before racking to ferment. Cultured yeast, low solids and cool ferment temperatures in stainless steel ensure the fruit characters are highlighted to their utmost in the resultant wine. At the completion of fermentation, the wine is allowed to evolve on lees for a short period of time before blending and preparation for bottle.

Meet the maker

were always beautiful and green quite a contrast to the dry and dusty terrain from the farm. During my final year of studies at the University of Adelaide, I commenced working at Petaluma in the Adelaide Hills, and this seeded my love of Riesling. After 18 months, I decided to explore the world of wine and for the next several years was a flying winemaker, working alternate vintages in both the Northern and Southern Hemispheres. In the north, this took me to France (Languedoc, Cognac & a couple of days in Bordeaux) and many times to Oregon, USA. This is where my love of Pinot was born. Back in Australia, I also explored Margaret River, Geographe, Clare Valley, SA and Macedon Ranges, Vic. In January 2007, coming back to WA, I joined Sandalford as Winemaker and in December 2012, was offered the Senior Winemaker position. To talk about my winemaking philosophy, is to first understand the vineyards. My role is to let the grapes shine and ensure they reflect the vineyard site they're from. The fruit source for all of our wines, are paramount to their success, and I'm incredibly lucky to have one of the oldest vineyards in Margaret River to work with.

2022 was dry and hot. The preceding winter and spring rainfall were above average and provided ample ground moisture for the vines to cope with the heat extremes of the summer. Fruit ripened to plan and was harvested with ripe, fresh flavours.
