The 2017 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon has just been released and is now available online and at the Cellar Door.
Both the Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon grapes are known for their origins in the producing wines from the Bordeaux Region in France. Here in Australia we often see the two grapes blended to create either what is known colloquially as SBS or SSB. This three letter acronym we’ve adopted in this country, all depends upon which grape is in the greatest quantity in the blend. Sauvignon Blanc dominant then it is called SBS, Semillon dominate, then we see SSB. A little known fact to many of the public is that once we use greater than 15% of another grape variety in a blend then we are required to list that variety on the label.
Our pale straw coloured wine has been blended to gain optimum in flavour and balance but still maintaining the characteristics of Sauvignon Blanc. A clean crisp palate of crunchy apples and juicy limes, with a lovely freshy citrusy finish. Great to enjoy now as a light summer drinking wine.

Awarded at the 2017 Geographe and WA Alternative Varieties Wine Show.
Mark & Pippa were very excited to receive the Wine Equip Award for Best Sweet Table Wine for the 2017 Moscato at the recent 2017 Geographe and WA Alternative Varieties Wine Show. The award was presented at the Gala Dinner held at the Bunbury Regional Entertainment Centre on Friday 22nd September.
The 2017 Moscato is an excellent example of this style of wine, and the first to be made from a blend of our fruit from both the Vineyard 28 and Wildwater sites.
With a touch of pink hues, this sweet and spritzy style is excellent as an aperitif or will be appreciated by those who like sweeter style wines.
Their 2017 Arneis and 2015 Nebbiolo were also awarded Silver Medals in their respective classes at this Wine Show. This is a second Silver Medal for the 2015 Nebbiolo, showcasing a broad range of recognition from wine judges across Australia.
