2018 Water Dancer Geographe Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

2018 Water Dancer Geographe Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Recommendations

Made by fast-rising, 5 red star rated West Aussie winery Willow Bridge, this ultra snappy white wine comes from Geographe, northeast of Margaret River and shows a whole array of fresh fruit goodness. 

The perfect wine for drinking right now (or at least any warm afternoon), it's all about that super pure fruit and well handled acidity. What a bargain it is too.

If this same wine came from Margaret River it would be twice the price...

How's it taste?

Pale yellow coloured, the nose has fresh beans and lemon juice, leading to a palate that starts with stonefruit and finishes with citrussy acidity.

How was it made?

Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes are picked relatively early to retain delicacy, then fermented and matured in tank. Freshness is the aim, looking to bottle those pristine fruit flavours.

Who made it?

Two hours south of Perth in the Ferguson Valley sub-region of Geographe is where you’ll find Willow Bridge Estate. Jeff and Vicki Dewar bought the vineyard in 1996 and enlisted the expertise of Kim Horton and Dougal Herd to create premium wines that are exceptional value for money. In 1997 they planted 100 acres of wine grapes – and held their breath. Then another 50 acres were planted in 1998, making Willow Bridge the biggest planting in what was then a largely unknown region. The vineyard is sited high on the western watershed of the Darling Ranges, with the vines enjoying spectacular views over the coastal plain, and across the waters of Geographe Bay to Cape Naturaliste. The vineyard is 25km from the coast as the crow flies, and receives the cooling afternoon sea breeze during summer. At an elevation between 230 and 280 meters, the estate is generally two degrees or more cooler than the coastal plain, with ripening times similar to the cool southern parts of the neighbouring Margaret River wine region.
