SKU: GSB2007

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
The 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 being the most common. Various canopy management methods are used, with the objective being to maximise sunlight into the fruiting zone, therefore enhancing fruit flavour development, the most important requirement for aromatic white wines.
The Season
2007 was one of the earliest recorded vintages in Margaret River. The season was marked by a warm dry growing season. Crop levels were down on expectations by up to 25% for both semillon and sauvignon blanc (which was worst affected). The season produced full flavoured, concentrated white wines with great aromatic intensity and lively fresh palates.
Winemaking
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 June 2007.
Analysis
13% alcohol, 6.56 g/l total acidity, 3.32 pH.
