The palate is light and textured with snow pea, nettle, passion fruit and lime. A clean and fruit driven wine that is full and freshness and vitality.
Clean and intense aroma with herbaceous characters of a now pea, nettle and thyme. There are ripe fruit characters of peach, black current, lychee and passion fruit with a drizzle of lime.
Pale green/straw color.
A range of light dining cuisine, an everyday wine for all occassions.
Fruit is sourced from neighbouring properties in the northern Yallingup sub-region of Margaret River. Direct input from Forester’s viticulturist ensures well balanced canopies and crops are grown for the ripe style desired. The 2015 vintage was another classic year for white grapes in Margaret River. The very low cropping year produced intensely flavoured grapes with balanced acid and sugar levels.
Modern white winemaking techniques are employed in the production of the Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, with temperature control considered critical from the moment the fruit reaches the winery. The fruit is destemmed and crushed, then must chilled and pressed off skins in a very short space of time. The clarified juice is then racked to a fermentation tank. A range of specially selected yeasts are employed on different parcels of fruit and the resulting dry tanks of wine are carefully blended to maintain the Forester Style. A small portion of barrel fermented Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc has been used to add texture and complexity.
Bottled under screwcap into a burgundy bottle in early June 2015.
