Baba Yaga, Si Vintners 2018
Sauvignon Blanc 80% - Cabernet Sauvignon 20%. Margaret River, Western Australia
A weird and wonderful marriage of Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet made a la naturale. Skin contact Sauvignon Blanc, co-fermented with a small proportion of Cabernet Sauvignon. No fining filtration or Sulphur. Baba Yaga is an amber/rosé wine with a wild and aromatic nose, with red berries, rose petals and herbaceous notes. The palate is textural and fresh with citrus fruits.
Sarah Morris and Iwo Jakimowicz are the couple behind the Si Vintners label, a heartfelt natural farming and winemaking project out of Margaret River. The two farm their small piece of Margaret River with a gentle hand leaning into organic viticulture within one of the country's most conservative winemaking regions. Their idiosyncratic wines are pushing the boundaries of Margaret River wine. There's a purity and balance inherent in everything this they produce. These are wines built from the roots up. You can feel the passion and love in every drop from this brave avant-garde operation. Theirs is one of the most exciting projects in Margaret River today.
