Franklin Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Franklin Estate Semillon Sauvignon

Franklin Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Both the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon fruit for this wine were harvested on a cool March evening and processed under inert conditions to retain aromatic varietal characters.
The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were processed individually with some skin contact in the grape press. Following settling, the wines were racked and inoculated for ferment in stainless steel vessels. A combination of yeasts were used to enhance the varietal characters and to produce fresh, fruity, clean wines. The ferments were held at a cool temperature around 11-12°C and lasted on average for 14 days. This cooler fermentation temperature also allows for the preservation of fruit aromas and flavours. After a few weeks on yeast lees, the wines were racked off lees and the individual components assessed and blended.
The final blend was given a light fining before being filtered and prepared for bottling.

Three Lions Great Southern Sauvignon Blanc

Three Lions Great Southern Sauvignon Blanc

Three Lions Great Southern Sauvignon Blanc

Three Lions Great Southern Sauvignon Blanc – Tropical and stone fruit aromas lead into a full flavoured and balanced palate, featuring white peach, lemon and pink grapefruit. A great example of cool climate Sauvignon Blanc that finishes crisp, with good citrus, stonefruit, and river pebble minerality lingering.

The Plantagenet’s were the first truly armigerous royal dynasty of England meaning they were entitled to strike and bear various coats of arms. The arms of this noble, later royal, family, Gules, three lions passant guardant, termed colloquially “the arms of England” were first adopted by King Richard the Lionheart (1189–1199), son of King Henry II of England (1154–1189), son of Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou (1113/17–1151).
These Three Lions signified royalty, history, power and a code of conduct that was instantly recognized wherever they were displayed.
So too with this range of wines. They are from the oldest established winery in Great Southern – they are wines with power and provenance. The Three Lion coat of arms of Plantagenet Wines is a recognized symbol of quality and prestige.

Plantagenet Wines embodies the best of the west with its distinctive wines of finesse and elegance. As a pioneer of the Great Southern region, Plantagenet’s reputation is celebrated for its rich heritage, its expressive wines and family-owned sensibility, making it one of the most trusted wine brands in the country.
The rich tapestry of the Plantagenet story begins in 1968, when English migrant Tony Smith envisaged great things for his land in Mount Barker. With his small inheritance, he bought a farm called Bouverie in the Plantagenet Shire and literally planted the seeds of the Plantagenet future – Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes bore the fruit of what would become some of the most highly awarded and sought after wines, both nationally and internationally. The fruit was picked in 1974 and the wines showed exciting potential, enough for Smith to convert a local apple packing shed into a winery and get to work making tight and lean Shiraz with typical regional spiciness and full-bodied cabernet. Embracing the conditions of the Great Southern’s cool climate, Smith went on to plant further varieties, including Riesling, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The vineyards all benefit from their coastal proximity, enjoying abundant rainfall and cool twilight breezes from the neighbouring Southern Ocean.

Madfish Unwooded Chardonnay

Madfish Unwooded Chardonnay

Madfish Unwooded Chardonnay by Burch Family Vineyards in Western Australia. Made with pure, uncomplicated enjoyment in mind, MadFish Chardonnay is a light, bright and strikingly modern version of Australian Chardonnay. A well-rounded, bright, vivacious wine with juicy fruit freshness, a fine texture, and generous length.

The delicate aromas of the MadFish Chardonnay show peach and poached stone fruits. Flavours of baked apple and pear dominate, with a clean grapefruit zestiness. Exceedingly enjoyable to drink, the wine is a well-rounded, bright, vivacious wine with juicy fruit freshness, a fine texture, and generous length.

The 2017 season – The start of the growing season gave beneficial moisture to the soil, as a wet winter and spring closed 2016.

In WA the summer of 2017 was atypical, remaining mild throughout. The result of such cool conditions was a late start to the grape harvest, but this did allow a steady development of fruit flavours in the grapes. For Chardonnay, it ensured vibrant acidity and bright rich fruit notes.

When to drink and with what – Drink this wine in its youth. Summer foods offer a perfect accompaniment – light seafood dishes, salad niçoise, fresh mozzarella with peaches.

Madfish Unwooded Chardonnay – a delicious expression of South-western fruit, offering broad appeal and versatility.

Enjoy now or over the next 2-3 years

Driftwood Estate Artifacts Malbec

Driftwood Estate Artifacts Malbec

Driftwood Estate Artifacts Malbec

BLEND 87.4% Malbec, 6.5% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5.7% Petit Verdot, 0.5% Shiraz

COLOUR Vibrant, deep violet red with purple hues.

AROMATICS Lovely lifted perfume of violets and rose petals, blackcurrant pastilles and mulberries with a hint of all spice and vanilla. PALATE Juicy, generous, chewy tannins supported by a bright acid backbone provide a great framework that highlights the rich mulberry, cherry and satsuma plum fruits and lingering all spice, creating a very drinkable wine.

OAK MATURATION 20% New, 100% French oak – 12 months in barrel.

AGEING POTENTIAL Very Good – 10 years.

WINEMAKING Driftwood grafted Malbec in the 2014 growing season and the 2016 vintage was the first crop, showing sufficient promise to bottle on its own! It was inoculated with yeast and cofermented with MLF bacteria using aerative and closed pump-overs, ensuring good flavour and tannin extraction, capturing the best qualities from this variety. Gently pressed at about 0 °Be, completing MLF in tank. It was split into several batches between barrel and tank maturation on good quality French oak staves for 5 months before being racked to barrel for final maturation. In August 2017, following extensive sensory evaluation, the best barrels were blended with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon and Petit Verdot and then returned to old oak to integrate for a further 3 months. VINTAGE 2016 Margaret River just keeps on giving, another great season that started early, continued warm, provided some nervous moments but finished solidly. Excellent canopy management in the vineyard and careful netting to protect against bird damage allowed the whites to build intensity of flavour and aromas in line with balanced acid. Harvest commenced on the 5th February with the final harvest being Driftwood’s newly grafted Cabernet Sauvignon in block 2 on 8th April, showing bucket loads of promise for the future.
