About This Wine

Previous Vintage: Sauvignon Blanc of the Year - Halliday Awards 2024

Sauvage Sauvignon Blanc is truly grown in the vineyard. Sauvage refers to the wild yeasts, which live on the outside of the fruit and these conduct the fermentation which is done in 500 L French Oak puncheons. Sauvage remains sur lie ( ‘lees’ are the fine grape solids and yeasts full of flavour and texture) in the puncheons for 10 months, allowing for generous textures and perfumes. The large oak allows a gentle ingress of oak elements. The addition textural and flavour elements make Sauvage a delicious match for chicken, veal, and flavoursome sea food.

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.
