90% Sémillon & 10% Chardonnay
Sarah and Iwo purchased their 30-acre established vineyard just South of Margaret River, Western Australia in 2010 with a view of making wine as naturally as possible. They converted the nearly 40-year-old vineyard to organics and are in the process of finalising their certified conversion to biodynamics. Right from the start they set out to make wines that respected time and place as best possible and saw an organic, natural approach as the best way to achieve that.​
Si White is a blend of Sémillon and Chardonnay that is structured, fruitful and herbaceous. We like to think of it as a perfect ‘white’ when that’s what you have in mind. There are some really nice thiol/green parallels to Sauvignon in there too. The fruit was hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in a mixture of concrete eggs, large format french oak and stainless steel. Kept on lees until just prior to bottling. Bottled unfiltered and unfined, no additives only a minimal sulphur addition at bottling.​
93/100 Mike Bennie, The Wine Front, May 2017 (2015 Vintage)
"​Semillon to the tune of 90% and chardonnay the rest. It sees about ten days on skins, “semillon is a bit of a bastard to get extraction and volume from, so letting it sit on its skins helps with texture and volume”, says vigneron Iwo Jakimowicz. Twist on the regional staple here. In a great way. Pungent perfume of green herbs, lime and lime leaf, preserved lemon. Punchy and tangy in the palate, zesty, green-tinged with some chalkiness to the feel, mouthwatering all up and pretty darn delicious. Loads going on, but the take away is a wine of high drinkability and electric personality."
