Intense with underlying pungency. A fresh and fruit driven wine displaying ripe fruit and herbaceous characters of passionfruit, lychee, snowpea and thyme.
A fresh and lively palate that’s long and plump with a textured mouthfeel. There are ripe fruit characters of passionfruit and gooseberry with fennel, snowpea and thyme.
Fruit is sourced from neighboring properties in the northern Yallingup sub-region of Margaret River. Direct input from Forester’s viticulturist ensures well balanced canopies and crops are grown for the ripe style desired. The 2022 vintage was a mild year for white grapes in Margaret River, allowing plenty of time during January and February to ripen the fruit to our specification.
Bottled under screwcap into a burgundy bottle.
Modern white winemaking techniques are employed in the production of the Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, with temperature control considered critical from the moment the fruit reaches the winery. The fruit is destemmed and crushed, then must chilled and pressed off skins in a very short space of time. The clarified juice is then racked to a fermentation tank. A range of specially selected yeasts are employed on different parcels of fruit and the resulting dry tanks of wine are carefully blended to maintain the Forester Style.
A range of light dining cuisine, an everyday wine for all occasions.
