Deep Woods

Just tasted some fantastic wines from Deep Woods wine estate. http://www.deepwoods.com.au/ This medium sized property (32 hectares) is based in the northern part of the Margaret River region of Western Australia.

The initial vines were planted by the Gould family, and the talented young team lead by Ben Gould produced some very good wines (5 star rated by James Hallyday). The property was subsequently sold to the businessman Peter Fogarty. Peter and his family are now investing significant amounts in the estate and plan to continue the good work. Peter F also owns the iconic Hunter Valley property Lakes Folly as well as Millbrook wine estate near Perth.

I love the delicate (11.5% alc) Deep Woods Ivory 2006 (Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blend). It is so refreshing to have an intense clean style of Sauv Blanc wine but balanced with lighter alcohol. Some of those big Marlborough NZ wines are just too ott....as a French friend says...'a meal in the wine'.

We have a great offer on the Deep Woods wines on the Special Offers page at http://www.bellawines.co.uk/
