Winemaker's Notes:

The Omrah Sauvignon is a 50/50 blend from our own Mount Barker vineyard, Rosetta, harvested at 21.3 brix and Akehurst vineyard, in Pemberton, harvested slightly riper at 23.2 brix. Both vineyards share similar viticultural practices, deep gravelly loam soils; with vines vertically shoot positioned and irrigated for healthy vine growth. Yield of both vineyards averaged 8.2 tonne/hectare.

Punchy greengage plums, lantana and gooseberries aromas with an undercurrent of lemon curd. A supple yet lithe palate with a fine core of crunchy acid running the length of the palate with loads of mouth watering, vibrant fruit flavours. A harmonious wine with a clean finish and delicious lingering flavours. A very savvy savvie. Enjoy now.

About Plantagenet:

The first vines were planted in 1968 at "Bouverie" Denbarker. These consisted of 4 1/2 acres of Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz. Plantagenet Wines now has boosted the total acreage to 100, including Malbec, Riesling, Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Franc, and Merlot. Plantagenet aims to make elegant, structured wines that have complexity, finesse and balance.
