2013 vintage scored 90 Points - Halliday Wine Companion 2016
The flagship La Bratta range was inspired by the village of La Bratta in Northern Italy where Garry's mother was born, and his grandfather and great grandfather were vignerons. The wines are a true reflection of the best fruit and blends from the vineyard and Forest Grove region.
A blend of Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon and Chardonnay with smart use of French oak and extended time on yeast lees.
Bouquet: a toasty and savoury, almost gunflint character with underlying citrus and barley sugar appeal
Palate: A dry and medium to full bodied style with well integrated acid and lemon grass, preserved lemon and grapefruit flavours. The wine is extraordinarily balanced and poised with a very long finish.
Cellaring: Enjoy now to 2025
Variety: 38% Sauvignon Blanc, 37% S̩millon, 25% Chardonnay
Region: Margaret River, WA
Maturation: Fermented and matured in 50% new, 50% two to three year-old French oak barriques for 18 months.
