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.

Pale straw with hints of green.
An abundance of tropical fruits including passionfruit, guava, honeydew melon and apricot kernel.
Juicy peach, guava and citrus flavours are supported with a slippery creamy texture. Hints of five spice and fresh honey complement the vibrant fruit driven palate.

Enjoy now to 2011.

The Vineyard
he lion’s share of the fruit came from the cooler southern half of the region, including our Chapman Brook Vineyard along with our other estate and selected contract vineyards. Various canopy management methods are used, with the objective being to maximise fruit flavour development. The typical soils of these vineyards are geologically ancient, free draining sandy loams with a high percentage of lateritic gravel.
The Season
A wet winter and warm spring encouraged uniform growth in all varieties. An ideal flowering period marked the beginning of a long dry spell lasting until mid-February when the whites were all harvested in perfect conditions over the following four weeks.
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.
12.5% alcohol, 5.8g/l total acidity, 3.38 pH.
