Margaret River is one of the world's great wine growing regions, renowned for producing exceptional, fully aromatic whites, and tangy, herbaceous Semillon/ Sauvignons. Cartwheel's vineyards enjoy the best of the region's maritime climes typified by long, dry summers and moderate, sultry wet winters. To fully express the unique regional characters of the Margaret River, Cartwheel employs winemaking techniques which permit the fruit flavours to shine right through. Enjoy now and experience the unrestrained zip and vivaciousness.
Cartwheel's Margaret River vineyards are chosen for their capacity to produce intense wines. Ideal ripening conditions are the norm, and the vines are refreshed by the maritime winds coming off the Indian Ocean. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grown to choice soils, well-drained sandy loams over water retentive clay loams. Grapes are harvested throughout the cool of the evening to maintain low fruit temperatures, before being crushed and pressed into tanks. After being settled overnight and racked, a cool fermentation is initiated, after which the batches of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon are assessed and assembled into a decidedly regional classic dry white.
Pale straw, hints of green. The nose shows intense aromas of gooseberry, passionfruit and citrus, further expressions of tropical fruit. These aromas develop across the palate along with grassy notes, characters of lime and green vegetable, nuances of slate and nut oil, a wonderful minerality that's made racey by the steely tang of fine fruit acids.

About the Cartwheel Winery
Yearning for adventure, a sense of fun and escapism? Cartwheel takes you off the beaten track to the inspiring Margaret River and Great Southern regions
Cartwheel's premium wines embody the natural sophistication of Western Australia's unique landscape and environment. The Margaret River wine region is focused around the Margaret River Township, which is located 250km South-West of Perth on a large peninsula of the West Australian Coast. Margaret River has a temperate maritime climate that is typified by long dry summers and moderate but very wet winters. Rising only to an elevation of 90m, the soils are well-drained sandy loams over water retentive clay loam that eliminates the need for supplementary watering in summer. Cartwheel»
