Si Vintners is made up of two qualified winemakers (husband and wife) who in September of 2010 purchased a 30 acre estate with 20 acres under vine (majority planted in 1978).  The property is situated just south of the Margaret River township in an area called Rosa Glen. Our motivation is to hand craft natural wines, which are expressive of the vineyard and sub-region. Since purchasing the property, the vineyard has been farmed 100% organic/biodynamic. All our wines are made without any of the usual additives used in commercial winemaking, apart from a small sulphur addition at bottling.  We bottle our wines without fining or filtration as we believe that these processes take away aromas and flavours from the wine. We believe a little sediment in the bottom of the bottle only creates a more authentic wine.

The White
A blend of Semillon and chardonnay (70/30), this fruit was hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in a mixture of concrete eggs, large format french oak and stainless steel. Kept on lees until just prior to bottling. Bottled unfiltered and unfined, no additives only a minimal sulphur addition at bottling.

The Red
A blend of Bordeaux varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Petit Verdot and Malbec. Naturally fermented in small open top fermenters with extended skin contact for ideal tannin extraction.  Basket pressed into a mix of new and old French oak from which the wine was matured for a period of 18months.  Bottled unfiltered and unfined with minimal sulphur.
