This site produces extremely tightly wound wines. The 2016 has particularly impressive acidity and has only just started to shine. The clay soils allow these wines to develop for a long time. Unfortunately the old vines produce very little fruit which means extremely low production (less then 1000 bottles in 2016). In 2016, the Chardonnay was basket pressed directly to barrel where the wine spent roughly 18 months. It was blended into stainless steel where it remained for a further 6 months to allow it to come together. - Winery Note
Si Vintners is made up of two qualified winemakers (husband and wife) who in September of 2010 purchased a 30 acre estate with 20 acres under vine (majority planted in 1978)."The property is situated just south of the Margaret River township in an area called Rosa Glen. Our motivation is to hand craft natural wines, which are expressive of the vineyard and sub-region.Since purchasing the property, the vineyard has been farmed 100% organic/biodynamic. "All our wines are made without any of the usual additives used in commercial winemaking, apart from a small sulphur addition at bottling.We bottle our wines without fining or filtration as we believe that these processes take away aromas and flavours from the wine. We believe a little sediment in the bottom of the bottle only creates a more authentic wine."
