Producer

The Hamelin Bay winery is located at Karridale in the southern point of the region within a few miles of the ocean. The 63 acre `Five Ashes Vineyard` is located on well drained gravel soils and faces north across the valley to gain the sun`s warmth in this cool region. The wines themselves are an expression of the natural beauty and uniqueness of the area, the fruit ripens with an intensity of flavour and richness of character. Owned by the Drake-Brockman family, who have a long association with the area, they have in recent years, achieved great recognition and awards for their range of outstanding wines.
Tasting Notes
A blend of Sauvignon Blanc with Semillion, the wine is a youthful straw colour with green highlights. On the nose there are aromas of grassy citrus fruits that compete with floral pear and melon with emerging hints of kiwi and passion fruit. The palate is very appealing with white fruits, citrus and pear. The mouthfeel is fresh with plush weight and an excellent harmonious finish.
Food
Enjoy on its own or with full flavoured dishes, spicy Oriental dishes, a fresh garden salad or pizza.
