Georgiana is a fresh, vibrant expression of Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc. Every effort is utilised in the vineyard and the winery to promote the clean aromatics and punchy citrus characters of this variety. Georgiana is distinctively textural on the palate, with bright and refreshing acidity providing balance to create the perfect summer white.

The Vineyard
he fruit is predominantly sourced from our own Chapman Brook Vineyard as well as Estate owned vineyards and contract growers in the Margaret River region. Vines grow in a range of different soil types, sandy loams the most common. Various canopy management methods are used, with the objective of maximising sunlight into the fruiting zone, enhancing fruit flavour development, the most important requirement for aromatic white wines.
The Season
In Margaret River, 2006 was a challenging vintage for many reasons. The summer months were unusually mild with occasional light rain. The mild conditions resulted in a harvest delayed by up to four weeks across all varieties, the latest vintage recorded in the region’s forty years of viticulture. Excellent acid retention and vibrant fresh fruit flavours are the result of this late season.
Winemaking
his year’s Georgiana is predominantly a blend of Margaret River sauvignon blanc and semillon. The philosophy behind Georgiana is one of freshness and vibrancy with our methods tailored to maximise the fruit flavours characteristic of our Margaret River vineyards. Fruit is machine harvested at night to take advantage of the cooler night- time temperatures. The clear juice is racked off gross lees and fermented to dryness in stainless steel tanks. Bottling took place in August 2006.
Analysis
13% alcohol, 6.8g/l total acidity, 3.35 pH.
