On its own or as part of a blend, Sauvignon Blanc is fully established as one of the most popular grape varieties of all. As a single varietal wine its spiritual home is France’s Loire Valley, but it is in New Zealand’s Marlborough region that it has become a global phenomenon. In Bordeaux, it is traditionally blended with Semillon, a style that has been emulated with great success in Western Australia.
Classic Western Australian Sauv. Blanc. Passionfruit aromas, with a grassy, geranium leaf edge. The palate is crisp and dry with herbaceous tones, and tropical fruits. An easy-drinking, Summer style. Recommended.

Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc of the Year 2019 - Halliday Wine Companion
'Always a regional tour de force, this has high quality Graves written all over it; not merely fermented in French oak (60% new), but aged as well (40% new) for 14 months, with incremental batonnage to amplify the compelling textural detail. A citrus choir with the focus on lemon: lemon grass, lemon curd and ripe Meyer, all soaring along a balancing beam of vanilla cream oak. This is world class, transcending the general malaise when it comes to these oft-abused varieties.' Halliday Wine Companion
