2022 Clairault Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Blend

85% Sauvignon Blanc & 15% Semillon

Vineyard

Ironstone Vineyard, Wilyabrup
Bridgeland Vineyard, Karridale

Winemaking Note

Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are all harvested separately according to their flavours and natural acidity balances. The fruit is cold pressed; the juice settled and then fermented using a variety of techniques. A portion is fermented in stainless steel at low temperatures to preserve freshness, while around 20% of the cuvee is fermented in French oak barriques to provide textural and complexing elements. We matched a yeast strain specifically to this wine in order to enhance the natural varietal characters of passionfruit and gooseberry. When fermentation was complete, the wine was then aged on it’s lees with gentle battonage for about a month before bottling in July to retain freshness.

Vintage Conditions

The 2022 vintage began with a warm and dry growing season with timeous top ups of rain. This has led to whites of unprecedented purity balanced with formidable power, and reds boasting intense red and blue fruits with striking yet supple tannin and structure. 

Aroma

White pear, jasmine and lemon zest.

Palate

A crisp entry of lemongrass and lychee, laced with hints of mango and yellow peach. A bright acid line guides the palate to a finish of subtle French Oak spice, untoasted cashews and yet more fresh white fruits and florals.

Cellaring

Enjoyed for its freshness now, or cellar for up to 4 years for added complexity.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A Margaret River favourite, this wine is vibrant with aromas of jasmine, white pear and freshly squeezed limes. On the palate, a pristine entry of natural acidity is balanced with flavours of nectarine, white flowers and creamy French oak tones. A balance of volume and vibrancy, left to linger by bracing minerality and driving texture.
