Nervy and shy on the front palate but grows outstanding lime, white flowers and slatey texture through the middle. The finish is outstanding: exceptional persistence in the mouth long after swallowing.
The Snake + Herring brand is a wine safari searching for remarkable grapes from West Australian Vineyards. The Search has begun, and our grape balloon manned by Snake (our winemaker) and Herring (our navigator) represent this.The southwest of WA is a viticultural treasure map as there are vineyard jewels scattered throughout. We seek for blocks within vineyards that really shine; they may seem dull when diluted by the bordering lesser dirt. The search is to find and polish these often overlooked gems and present a treasure chest of different jewels: pristine, crystalline Rieslings; crisp, radiant, multi-faceted Chardonnays; alluring, perfumed Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon; dark, exotic, hedonistic Shiraz; brilliant, regal displays of Cabernets and blends.

Bright, light quartz; while the bouquet doesn't have much to say, the palate does, its citrus/apple flavours a clear stream running over the riverbed pebbles and rocks.
