Grape Variety

Sauvignon Blanc, Sémillon

Vinification Details

The grapes were crushed, chilled and gently pressed to retain the bright fruit flavours. The juices were fermented separately in tanks at cool temperature to enhance the varietal characteristics of the wine. The wine was matured for two months on lees to build texture and complexity before final blending prior to packaging.

History

Various vineyards with cool maritime and Mediterranean climate with vines up to 35 years old. Ross Pamment began his winemaking career as a Cellar Hand at Houghton in the Swan Valley in 1989 before working in Burgundy and throughout Europe. He then completed a Bachelor of Science in Oenology before taking on a role as Winemaker in Eden Valley, South Australia followed by Assistant Winemaker with Salitage. In October 1999, Ross rejoined the winemaking team at Houghton in the Swan Valley.

Regional Information

Western Australia experienced an average winter but above average rainfall in Spring 2011. The South West of Western Australia then experienced above average rainfall at the beginning of harvest, combined with above average maximum temperatures and warm nights. The 2012 vintage was the hottest on record in terms of heatwaves, these weather patterns resulted in the harvest of fruit a week ahead of normal as ideal flavour, sugar and acid balance was achieved very rapidly.
