The bouquet entices with bright floral and fresh garden herb aromas, supple, intense, tangy gooseberry and lychees flavours, good weight in the mid-palate, before crunchy acidity heralds a vibrant dry finish of considerable length.
A wonderful expression of the style, this release will help to maintain its reputation as among the country’s finest.
‘Our take on this classic blend is clear. The ideal conditions for growing each variety are very different; semillon responds to warmer sunny weather while sauvignon blanc thrives in cooler, mild conditions. To me, the obvious approach is for each to be grown in the region where it excels. For semillon, that means the Clare Valley and for sauvignon blanc it’s the Adelaide Hills.’ JG
