Product Description


Clairault Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Blend: 76% Sauvignon Blanc 24% Semillon

Region: Margaret River

Vintage Current Vintage (enquires welcome)

Aroma: Perfumes of guava, nectarine, and white grapefruit.

Palate: High toned flavours of freshly sliced white pear, gooseberry and lime are carried a on a textured palate, with succulent acidity.

Cellaring: Up to 4 years, however we enjoy it for freshness

Winemaking: Semillon and Sauvignon blanc are all harvested separately according to their flavours and natural acidity balances. The fruit is cold pressed; the juice settled and then fermented using a variety of techniques. A portion is fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures to preserve freshness, while around 20 % of the cuvee if fermented in French oak barriques to provide textural and complexing elements. We matched a yeast strain specifically to this wine in order to enhance the natural varietal characters of passion fruit and gooseberry. When fermentation was complete, the wine was then aged on it's less with gentle battonage for about a month before bottling in July to retain freshness.

Vintage: 2012 provided the ideal maritime "classic", beginning with a wet July, a drier than average August, a wet September with only moderate falls in Oct and November, with slightly above average falls in December. The new year blessed with a perfect Indian summer, characterised by sunny days until early April. The relatively dry end to the growing season, combined with warmer than long term mean temperatures in January and Feb set up for some spectacular ripening  conditions. The early season warmth corresponded to early ripening of the whites and the early ripening of tannins in the reds, a very desirable character. The slightly cooler temperature for March allowed gentle and complete ripening of the reds, making it a complete joy to be part of the Margaret River Wine Industry.
