This wine is pale lemon in colour with aromas of tropical and stone fruits, lemon blossom and subtle herbaceous notes. On the palate are flavours of white nectarine, ripe lemon peel and a slate-like minerality. The small portion of French oak adds texture and complexity to this Sauvignon Blanc which is balanced by the crisp acidity.

Description

The Three Lions wines from Plantagenet are wines of power and provenance, much like the family from which they draw inspiration. The name Plantagenet was given to the shire in Western Australia by early English settlers, and was adopted by the winery when it was established in 1974. The arms of the Gules family, who later became the Plantagenet dynasty, were three lions passant guardant, termed colloquially “the arms of England”. TheywerefirstadoptedbyKingRichardtheLionheart(1189–1199), son of King Henry II of England (1154– 1189), son of Geoffrey Plantagenet, Count of Anjou (1113/17– 1151). Plantagenet the winery is self-sufficient, with 126 hectares of vineyard in Great Southern. All their wines are made from estate fruit. Their Three Lions label, with a link to the name Plantagenet, showcases the quality of grapes from across their various sites.
