Elevated ironstone gravel soils and cool, even ripening temperatures contribute to a Chardonnay of great structural complexity and intense fruit flavours. A mix of five clones are harvested off estate vines, a quarter of the fruit is whole bunch pressed and the balance is destemmed prior to pressing. Cold settled clarified juices are processed as separate clonal batches, completely barrel fermented in a combination of new and seasoned French oak barriques from choice Burgundy cooperages. Upon completion, batches are sulphured to prevent any malolactic, Salitage remains in barrel on yeast lees fourteen months before assemblage and sterile filtration for bottling.
 
Mid straw in colour. The nose exhibits fruit aromas of citrus, stone fruits and melon, with oak spice and mealy characters derived from the barrel fermentation and lees contact. The palate is generous in flavour, underpinned by grapefruit acid. The finish shows understated oak and excellent fruit flavour and length.

Treehouse Pemberton Pinot Noir 2013
Pemberton
The entry level Pinot Noir by one of Pemberton's grand old winemaking estates. As to the moniker, there really is a treehouse, it's the grand children's play area and it's set deep within the fabled forests of Salitage. A balanced and approachable young Pinot Noir of the finest provenance, offering excellent early drinking, highly compatible across a wide range of food styles.

John Horgan established Salitage after tours of duty at Robert Mondavi and Premier Cru Domaine de la Pousse D'or. Several clones of Pinot Noir are collated from choice Pemberton vineyards, each site is picked and separately handled. Parcels are treated to small batch, whole berry vinification in fermenters, employing twice daily pumpovers and rack returns. Fermentation temperatures peak at 30┬░C and last for up to a fortnight or more. Upon achieving dryness, batches are drained, pressed to tank and settled, followed by transfer to seasoned French oak barriques for completion of natural malolactic. The final wine is assembled in Spring and treated to a light filtration before bottling.
 
Medium intensity, plum red colour. Aromatics of wild strawberry, red cherry, hints of white pepper and wood spice. Cherry flavours with a fleshy and textured palate lead to a soft balanced finish. The wine shows pleasing complexity, length of flavour with lovely moderated oak tannins. Due to the minimal handing during vinification, a small deposit is expected, the winemakers recommend decanting prior to serving.

Treehouse Sauvignon Blanc 2013
Pemberton
An exemplar in Sauvignon Blanc, by one of Margaret River's finest family estate owned and operated wineries. Salitage are renowned for the quality of their fruit and skill at minimalist vinification techniques. Extended resting on lees has contributed mouthfeel, a mouthfilling, textural palate and enticing complexity. Envigorating, fresh and crisp, to be served lightly chilled, as the prominent varietal fruit characters and crisp acidity make a refreshing aperitif style.

The Salitage winery has been designed with a minimalist approach, from the handling of the fruit throughout the entire vinification process, to produce wines which have structural complexity and intense flavours. Treehouse wines are made in the Salitage winery using estate grown fruit, complimented by parcels grown to adjacent vineyards around Pemberton. Sauvignon Blanc is harvested off Salitage Block 8, parcels are kept separate and grapes are pressed batch by batch. Juices are treated to a term of cold settling, inoculated and vinified in fermenters for a fortnight at 15┬░C. Upon completion, components are held on sedimentery yeast lees for nine months prior to the assemblage, racking and bottling.
 
Pale straw in colour. A range of tropical fruit aromas, pear, gooseberries and passionfruit with flinty notes and subtle herbal undertones. The palate is fruit driven and nicely weighted, exhibiting mineral accents and clean varietal fruit. A touch of tropical, mineral and green vegetable characters, soft acidity and long, lingering, flavoursome finish.

John and Jenny Horgan entered the fine wine business more than two decades ago as pioneers in the fledgling Margaret River region. In the late 70's John worked and studied under the guidance of Robert Mondavi in Oakville, California and in 1985 purchased an equity in the famous Premier Cru winery, Domaine de la Pousse D'or in the Cote D'or region of Burgundy.

This collective experience, spanning 25 years in Australia, USA, and France led to the establishment of Salitage at Pemberton, Western Australia

The Salitage winery has been designed with a minimalist approach to both juice and wine handling. Elevated fermenters, spanning three levels in the winery, enable the winemaker to move the wine under its own weight.

Salitage is a family winery producing 25,000 cases per year. Salitage use French oak Barriques exclusively for the barrel maturation of wines. Traditional wine making methods have been retained and these are complimented by the technological advances in modern day plant and equipment.

Discerning wine drinkers are increasingly looking to regionality, they want to know the source of the grapes, soil types and the climatic conditions that prevail in particular viticultural regions.
