Si Vintners was founded in 2010 by Sarah Morris and her husband, Iwo Jakimowicz - both experienced wine makers - who purchased the estate after discovering it by chance during an afternoon drive through Rosa Glen, just south of the Margaret River in Western Australia. There are 20 hectares under vine, the majority of which were planted in 1978, making them some of the oldest vineyards in the region. Within a year they had converted to organics and ttoday they are strictly biodynamic using minimal additional sulphur and naturally occurring yeasts. All their wine is bottles without fining or filtration. This juicy white is a blend of 70% Semilllon and 30% Chardonnay. 50% is aged in concrete, 30% in large oak barrels and 20% in stainless steel. Only 1400 bottles are made so early purchase is recommended.
A bright golden in the glass. A spicy nose suggesting lemons, green apples and ginger. On the palate, crisp and very refreshing with a pronounced acidity and crunchy green fruit flavours., Very clean and bright finish with a touch of salinity. Try with baked cod with tomato and onion, mussel stew with saffron and cream or Mojettes a la creme (white beans with garlic and cream).
