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.

Appearance
Pale straw with hints of green.

Punchy vibrant aromas of gooseberry, passionfruit, lemon rind and tropical fruits with a hint of elderflower.
Palate

Blend
100% Sauvignon Blanc

Food Pairing Notes
Fritto Misto (assorted crunchy fried seafood)
The Vineyard
The lion’s share of the fruit came from the cooler southern half of the region, including our Chapman Brook Vineyard. Various canopy management methods were 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
Margaret River experienced amongst the warmest vintage on record and on a par with the very warm 2011 vintage. White varieties were all harvested in a rush and look fantastic witht the fruit all in the winery by the end of February. Flavours are bright and fresh with natural acidity high and in good balance with the fruit intensity. Another great vintage for Margaret River.
Winemaking
When harvesting sauvignon blanc the emphasis is placed on capturing vibrant fresh flavours with clean acidity. Fruit is harvested at night to take advantage of the cooler temperatures. Fermentation takes place in 100% stainless steel tanks. The wine was assembled after three months on lees and bottled in July 2014.
Analysis
12.5% alcohol, 7.3 g/l total acidity, 3.2 pH.
