Wine Region: Swan Valley, Australia
Grape: Chenin Blanc
Passion fruit and lemon / lime pith at its core, waxy and mealy characters with a little preserved lemon. A bit of funk, a bit more texture, focused citrussy acid pulls it through.
About the Winery
Garth Cliff spent 20 years making wine across Australia and in the US, with a decade at Houghton before striking out on his own with partner Kristen McGann. And while many a Western Australian winemaker would feel drawn to the glamour regions, like Margaret River, Cliff was most passionate about the deeply unfashionable Swan District.
