2009 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon ($22 per bottle)


James Halliday | 92 points  

"A long fresh finish..."

‘Vibrant green hue; a youthful and expressive bouquet showing citrus, straw and a dollop of toasty oak; nice tension in texture and acidity provide a long and fresh finish’ James Halliday


 Appearance: A clear vibrant pale straw with green hues.
Nose: Beautiful citrus coming through, slightly nutty and herbaceous.
Palate: Lovely balance and fine acidity. Delicious and mouthwatering. Medium intensity with good concentration and finish.

68% Sauvignon Blanc, 32% Semillon

The vine canopy is divided so that the shoots grow up and down from the cordon in order to improve light interception and hence development of flavours during ripening while reducing any microclimate humidity. Minimal intervention was needed on the 25 year old Sauvignon Blanc block which is located at 130 metres above sea level, one of the highest blocks in the Margaret River region.

The varieties were vinified separately, selecting an aromatic yeast for the Sauvignon Blanc, and a textural yeast for the Semillon. A portion was fermented in French oak barrels to provide some background complexities and textures. This final blend was assembled when all the wines had completed fermentation.
