Dutch explorer Gulden Zeepaard was not the first tall ship to chart the coast of Western Australia but she did predate Captain Cook by a century and a half. Today, Gulden Zeepaard's logo adorns the label of West Cape Howe. Headquartered within the grounds of their undulating home vineyard at Mount Barker, the West Cape Howe team collate parcels of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc from across the finer viticultural precincts of the Australian west, for the construct of an intense wine which would unnerve it's laureate siblings from across the Tasman.
Harvests of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are selected from vineyards at Pemberton, Great Southern and Margaret River. Fruit is crushed with minimal sulphur and chilled prior to pressing. Free run juices are kept separate and pressings fined to remove phenolic compounds. After a period of cold settling, juices were racked and filtered, followed by inoculation through choice yeasts and cool tank vinification at a steady rate for two to three weeks, the temperatures closely monitored and controlled. Upon completion, the components were racked and the final assemblage determined, promptly followed by an early bottling to retain freshness.
TASTING NOTES
Pale straw yellow hues. Highly aromatic style exhibiting tropical notes with subtle citrus and fresh grass aromas. A vibrant and flavoursome palate combining the ripe, textural elements of Semillon with lighter refreshing Sauvignon Blanc characters. Stone fruit flavours, citrus notes and refreshing acidity combine to give the wine a clean, moreish finish.

About West Cape Howe Winery
It is the quality of the Great Southern region and the combination of skill and artistry between viticulture and winemaking that makes drinking West Cape Howe wines a truly memorable experience
Within the Great Southern wine region is a collection of five sub regions, each with their own unique topographical qualities. These regions include Denmark, Albany, Porongurup, Mount Barker and Frankland River. With a typical maritime climate, the coastal towns of Denmark and Albany experience relatively mild summer temperatures and cool wet winters. These conditions enable fruit to ripen slowly and gradually, thus developing subtle layers of fruit intensity and are well suited to the earlier ripening varieties such as Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Merlot. Further inland to Mount Barker, Porongurup and Frankland River, the days are slightly warmer, and the nights are cooler (with a higher risk of frosts). With greater sunshine hours, these sub-regions are where Riesling, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz varieties thrive. West Cape Howe»
