James Halliday – Hand picked over 5 days, fermented in stainless steel. Ashbrook has long made a varietal semillon of very good quality and this vintage is no exception. Grassy, tense and decidedly nervy, combining spring snow pea, jasmine tea and green pineapple. It has a distinct white-pepper character that laces through the fruit and lingers on the finish. - Erin Larkin

About This Wine

Sweet grassiness to punchy ripe citrus on the nose with complex nut, straw, toast and ripe lemon on the palate.

A classic example of what this variety can achieve in a warm maritime climate. Made in an unwooded style to retain and enhance varietal fruit freshness. Staggered harvesting of fruit from a combination of estate sites and trellising systems allows expression of a spectrum of aromas and flavors.

Margaret River Wine

In the southwest of Western Australia, the Margaret River wine region is unique in that it is the most maritime-influenced region in all of Australia. The cool Indian ocean breezes come in through the summer to keep the temperatures around the vines steady resulting in an unusually even accumulation of warmth in the growing season. It is also quite dry as interestingly less than 20% of the annual rainfall occurs as the grapes are growing. The region’s climatic factors have been compared to what Bordeaux would be like in a dry season. While the region’s total production is relatively small (3% of Australia’s total wine production), it is responsible for 20% of our premium wine market.

Cabernet Sauvignon, Shiraz as well as Bordeaux blends are all very popular red wine options in the region.

For whites, refreshing blends of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon as well as complex, age worthy Chardonnays are the specialties.
