"Chardonnay and semillon seem to be easy bedfellows, particularly for early complexity for ready consumption and interest. Semillon is fermented in concrete eggs and hand-harvested from the Si home block, chardonnay from a vineyard managed by Iwo and Sarah of Si. Spicy kind of intro to this wine ‚– gets you worked up for the hit of lemony, green apple-driven flavours that follow. Very crispy in texture with a kind of wild, loose-knit feel. So refreshing, more so for that brisk, saline tang that follows. Whip that palate clean. Zing, crunch. Super." Mike Bennie 09/10/14 - www.winefront.com.au
In their own words: "Si Vintners is 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."
