Winemaker’s Notes

Grown under the warm Western Australian sun and cooled by local sea breezes, the Amberley vineyards produce fruit with vibrant, attractive fruit flavours expressed through our wines.

Winemaking

The 2012 growing season began with a wet winter and continued into an ideal bud-burst on the vines in spring. There was little rain during the growing season and therefore yields were down a little. Summer temperatures were warm but not excessive, providing excellent ripening conditions in the lead up to harvest. The 2013 Chenin Blanc fruit showed the classic varietal characters of honey and apple.

Tasting Notes

Bright, pale straw with a green hue, this wine displays clean, fresh aromas of green apple and pear on the nose. There are underlying hints of honeysuckle and toasty notes, adding  complexity. Off-dry, with a crisp acidity that refreshes the middle and back palate, the high fruit intensity shows juicy characters of Fuji apples, apple blossom and lime, concluding
with attractive honey right at the finish.

Food Pairing

Best enjoyed with fresh, Asianinspired dishes or Indian curries.
