Appearance - Pale green. Nose - Fresh passionfruit, kiwi fruit and lime with hints of grassiness. Palate - Tangy lime, passionfruit and gooseberry on the palate from the Sauvignon Blanc, with gentle red apple and lemon sherbet from Semillon, with clean crisp acidity and a textural finish.
:"fresh and frisky nose and palate with plenty of pea pod, green bean and fresh mown grass, the Semillon lending ripe citrus/lemony fruit and acidity. There?s a dusty (in a good way), steely mineral note to the finish, which has good length." Sarah Ahmed - The Wine Detective Although pineapple fleshiness tends to dominate the nose and start of the palate there is underlying citric freshness. The crispness is in evidence on the mid palate but then towards the back sweeter fruit shows lending some weight to the finish. Derek Smedley MW 88 points
Ferngrove is a remarkable success story built on the vibrant dream of a prominent Western Australian south coast pioneering family. In 1996, with nearly 90 years of beef and dairy farming history , Ferngrove founder, Murray Burton decided to move into premium grape growing. He mortgaged the family farm to purchase land at Frankland River, 360 kilometres south of Perth, where he knew the productive soils, pristine environment and temperate Mediterranean climate were ideal for viticulture. The Vines thrived and more land was acquired, leading to the establishment of Ferngrove Vineyard in 1998. In 1999, a 'state of the art' winery was established at Ferngrove and the first vintage was produced in 2000, and the rest they say is history... Ferngrove has established a reputation as a premium wine producer in the Frankland River and the winery is fast becoming recognised for its production of outstanding, cool climate wines from estate-grown fruit.
