Light straw green. 58% Semillon, 40% Sauvignon Blanc and 2% Verdelho
Complex aromas of tropical feijoa notes, freshly cut grass and lemon citrus. The palate has a lovely creamy texture and displays intense notes of limes, lemon and peaches. These pure fruits are sustained on a long crisp finish. Ceviche scallops or kingfish.
On the advice of eminent agronomist Dr. John Gladstones, Dr. Kevin and Diana Cullen planted a trial acre of vines at Wilyabrup, Margaret River in 1966. Commencing in 1971, 18 acres of vines were planted on their sheep and cattle farm, including their first Cabernet Sauvignon vines. Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Semillon, Merlot and Cabernet Franc were planted between 1976 and 1978.

58% semillon, 40% sauvignon blanc, 2% verdelho, wild-fermented, 22% of the blend aged in oak for 4 months. A three-dimensional fact sheet to cover all the facets of this wine, but it all comes down to the way it has absorbed the oak, and having done so, how the synergism of the two main varieties totally blinds any attempt to work out exactly what either are contributing at any point of time. Harmony, balance and length is the take home lesson.
