About This Wine

The chenin blanc was hand-picked from our original 1988 plantings in Willyabrup, Margaret River. The grapes were picked early in the season, chilled and gently whole bunch pressed prior to fermentation and maturation in tank for 8 months. The Fire Gully vintage sparkling is a made using the tradition method, with fermentation occurring in bottle and maturation occurring on lees in bottle for over 12 months.
No dosage was performed, for this vintage, as the wines natural acidity was in balance when bottling. Flavours of citrus blossom, green apple, grapefruit, toast and meringue. Cleansing and floral. The perfect accompaniment to oysters and celebration.

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.
