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 2019 vintage was a cool 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 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, with temperature control considered critical from the moment the fruit reaches the winery. The fruit is destemmed and crushed, then must chilled and pressed off skins in a very short space of time. The clarified juice is then racked to a fermentation tank. A range of specially selected yeasts are employed on different parcels of fruit and the resulting dry tanks of wine are carefully blended to maintain the Forester Style.
