“Organic” Sauvignon Blanc 2009

Mr Whirly says:

“ More like a Sancerre Chavignol or Pouilly Fume than a Sauvignon from “down under” I think? Is this good? Yes, I believe it is fantastic to have something more classical in its makeup, more steely and dry yet with some down under freshness and creativity”

Winemakers tasting notes:

“Clean and beautifully pure impression strikes from the first sniff into the glass. There are some nice lemon scents with a pleasant mix of tropical fruits and gooseberry. The palate is light bodied but with excellent flavours sustained with a vibrant fresh acidity.”

Ray Jordan, Western Australia wine writer:

“ In 2006 Mountford wines was the first winery in the Pemberton region to gain organic  certification status with WASAA, the internationally recognised accreditation body. The vineyard is now well established and this is starting to be reflected in the intensity and complexity of the fruit. The grapes are handled in traditional and innovative ways with the emphasis on simplicity and care.”
