Viticulture

Fruit is sourced from neighboring properties in the northern Yallingup
sub-region of Margaret River. Direct input from Forester’s viticulturist
ensures well balanced canopies and crops are grown for the ripe style
desired. The vintage was a mild year for white grapes in Margaret River,
allowing plenty of time during February and March to ripen the fruit to
our specification.

Winemaking

Modern white winemaking techniques are employed in the production
of the Little Sweetie, with temperature control considered critical from
the moment the fruit reaches the winery. The fruit is de stemmed and
crushed, then must chilled and pressed off skins in a very short space of
time. The clarified juice is then racked to a tank and a specially selected
yeast used for fermentation. Fermentation is then stopped with the
desired amount of sugar required for this slightly sweeter style of wine.
