2018 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
Winemaking: Sauvignon blanc is steel tank fermented. Semillon in old French oak for two months.
A sauvignon blanc and Semillon blend, made with the intention of showcasing as much fruit purity and intensity as possible. The Margaret River region affords us ideal growing conditions for these two varieties; the sauvignon blanc contributing bright fruit characters and the barrel fermented Semillon providing the structure, texture and mid-palate weight required to make this not just a delicious early drinking, bright aromatic expression of SBS, but also a texturally interesting and complex wine.
Aromas of sea salt, fresh stewed apples, white nectarine, salted preserved lemon and fresh
brioche. The palate jumps out of the glass with apple, sugar snap pea, hints of cassis and white
currant. The finish is creamy and long – there is an almond meal/crushed cashew character
that just sneaks in and wraps things up.
