This candle has been created in collaboration with Lennox Hastie, founder and chef behind Firedoor to capture the warmth and energy of sitting around an open fire and to highlight the fragrant beauty of some of the ingredients Lennox cooks with.
Fresh juniper, fruity davana and rich bitter fennel are extended with green violet leaf, while the citrus heart notes from neroli and petitgrain invigorate the senses. Honeyed facets of native kunzea and spicy pimento make way to vibrant sherry-like characteristics from carrot seed, which slowly reveals a base of native buddawood and guaiacwood before being warmed with rich cepes, earthy tobacco and a smokey pairing of choya and vetiver.
Pristine isolation. Ancient terrain. A remarkable coastline with a Mediterranean climate. These three elements make Margaret River one of the world’s great wine regions.
Positioned on a cape and surrounded by the Indian and Southern oceans on 3 sides, the region backs onto desert. The Leeuwin current flows warm from the north and the constant cooling ocean breezes provide gradual gentle ripening conditions against a terroir of red ochre, granite and gravel loam.
Tall forests tower over colourful wildflowers and pristine white beaches are hugged with native scrub. A wild surf coast meets verdant forest and beyond the stacks of granite boulders lie these exceptional wineries. Here the soil and vineyards are treated as a living ecosystem and the link between plant growth and rhythms of the cosmos is celebrated. A place of minimal intervention. Where nature speaks for itself.
