Created from the unique terroir of the cool climate Karridale sub-region of Margaret River, the Hamelin Bay Five Ashes Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2013 presents very appealing lemon zest, dried herb and subtle tropical aromas. Ripe and juicy, it has mid-palate sweetness with layers of citrus and tropical fruits.
Named after the “blue haze of swarming butterflies” that gather over Willow Bridge’s dam in the late autumn afternoons, the Willow Bridge Estate Dragonfly Chardonnay 2014 presents mealy, nutty, marzipan and peach aromas. The palate shows intense white peach and citrus fruit with an undercurrent of mealy lees and vanillin oak.
Crafted from cool climate Great Southern fruit, the Forest Hill Vineyard Highbury Fields Shiraz 2012 offers a medium weight, yet concentrated palate with loads of dark plummy fruit and peppery spice. It’s quite youthful with firm, tightly woven tannins and rich, chocolatey length.
Another highlight of the reds, the Millbrook Cabernet Merlot 2010 from Perth Hills displays strong regional and varietal flavours with juicy blackberry and chocolate richness supported by soft tannins, and a generous mouthfeel. At five years of age it’s at its prime and perfectly to enjoy now.
