2019 Vintage

2019 was a cooler and later vintage than the previous 10 years; a year of
elegant, perhaps slightly lighter bodied wines, though ripe in flavour,
vibrant and very perfumed. Higher than average yields in combination
with a cooler season contributed to delayed ripening of the fruit and
good acid retention. Canopy management and fruit thinning was
imperative to allow for even, persistent ripening.

Vineyards

The 2019 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon was blended from three
vineyards in the Karridale sub-region and one Semillon vineyard in the
Wallcliffe sub-region of Margaret River. The great thing about sourcing
fruit from several vineyards and sub regions is that you can create wines
with a larger range of flavours and can ultimately blend more complex
and interesting wines.

Winemaking

The 2019 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon was picked at reasonably low
Baume, capturing fine high-note aromas, crisp primary fruit flavours and
good acid structure. The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc juices are then
fermented under cool conditions using specially selected yeasts to ensure
the varietal characters are accentuated. This wine was fermented without
the use of oak for pure fruit expression. The wine was then fined, filtered
and bottled in August.

Tasting Notes

The nose on the 2019 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon shows plenty of
varietal fruits in the kiwi fruit, lemon grass, passionfruit and lime spectrum.
Semillon’s citrus and floral notes are complemented by the tropical
passionfruit aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc. Cool nights, a hallmark of the
vintage, has harnessed plenty of fresh, crunchy fruits and wonderful crisp
acidity. The 2019 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a versatile wine that
could be enjoyed as an aperitif or with almost any modern food of your
choice.
