Floris is a modern and engaging expression of our local clone into wine. This style is a co-evolution of Modern Australian food and wine culture, which has great emphasis on balance, freshness and hedonistic pleasure. The sustainably farmed vineyard is in the cool southern end of Margaret River. Floris exhibits delicate textures and floral notes reminiscent of white jasmine flowers.

GROWING SEASON

A dry and sun-drenched summer in 2020 led to fantastic fertility, perfectly moderated by a mild winter and a long cool spring. A hot and dry start to summer led to beautiful vine growth, followed by a cool ripening season with sporadic summer rains. The resultant wines are characterised by intense aromatics, coating natural acidity, and ultra-fine tannin and tension.
