StyleFull Bodied & Rich
Visitors to this Estate are greeted by an enormous Australian flag hoisted up onto the tallest flagpole in the country and beautiful Cape Dutch winery buildings set in delicately manicured grounds. This is the domaine of Michael Wright, a perfectionist in all he does including his superb Margaret River wines. Yields in this cool and blustery part of Western Australia are naturally low, the vineyards, next door to those of Leeuwin Estate, are ideally situated to benefit from the cool maritime climate.
Strong citrus aromas and grapefruit pith with flinty mineral notes. The textural palate is long and intense, driven by a tightly woven core of lemon pith and grapefruit with a clean, flinty mineral finish.

"With melons and minerals alongside citrus notes and a tantalising whiff of smoke, the steeliness on the palate allied with crispness gives this an elegant balance. The oak is more subtle, making this one for fish."
