Walsh & Sons Little Poppet
Note from the winemakers:
WHAT WE MADE
We have blended Semillon and Chardonnay for the intrigue. Our wines are designed to have edgy bits because we think its these differences that define us. To that end it’s not fined or filtered. We choose family names from our younger generation because its only right that wine with personalities have a name to match. This wine has natural acid backbone, pure blue eyes and dry almost red tannins from a bit of good oak .. See the picture you’ll get it ..
WHERE IT CAME FROM
I have Semillon from sandy clay soils in east Margaret River in a locality known as Osmington. It is eastern Margaret River and with cooler nights given it’s slightly further inland. My old man runs it and loves it. Planted in 1998, it borders the coal seam that runs from Dunsborough to Augusta making the soils slighter in structure but higher in aromatics particularly sulfides. Rows run east west on a slight north facing slope.
Freya is a Chardophile with Chardonnay from a family property set on the Margaret river itself in a locality called Burnside. Planted in 1981 by her father David on a bend in the river (Burnside means – one who lives on the bended side of a river) its unique micaceous black soils are only 2km from where the river meets the ocean. The Chardonnay rows are on a steep northerly aspect with rows running in a north-west, south-east orientation.
Please Enjoy with Family and friends
