2018 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

The estate grown fruit was harvested at optimal ripeness in the early hours of the morning and pressed to tank.  The juice from several blocks were fermented separately in tank and kept on lees post fermentation to improve mouthfeel.  The Semillon (56%) and Sauvignon Blanc (44%) components were blended prior to bottling to create the harmony between the two varieties in the final wine.

Vintage:
Excellent growing conditions during spring led to healthy canopies and set the vineyard up beautifully for the rest of the season. A mild, yet very dry ripening season resulted in pristine fruit quality with an abundance of flavour intensity.

Colour:
Bright pale straw with green flecks.

Palate:
Bright flavours of lemon zest and passionfruit on the palate. Vibrant and sherbety acidity results in a refreshing length to the flavour profile.

Cellaring:
Ready to enjoy now.

Alcohol:
12.8%
