Fermoy Estate

2019 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc


 VARIETALS (%’S):  56% Semillon; 44% Sauvignon Blanc

Appearance:  Brilliant, pale straw yellow with green tints.

Aroma:  Fresh, complex aromatics of guava, white flowers & kaffir lime leaf overlay subtle cedar & lemon curd notes.

Palate:  The palate is bright, textured & refreshing – transitioning from cut straw & fresh asparagus to fleshy guava fruits.  A mouth-watering lemon curd acid provides some crunch & texture, while a subtle oak complexity provides drive, persistence & length.

Oak Detail:  A portion of the blend (~15%) underwent fermentation & 4 month’s maturation in a combination of new & seasoned French oak, while the balance was fermented cool in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness & aromatics.  Maturation on ferment lees contributed to texture, mouthfeel & overall complexity.

Cellaring:  Ready for immediate drinking & will continue to drink well over the next 2-3 years.

Alcohol Volume:  12.8%
Acidity:  pH 3.27; TA 7.0g/L
Residual Sugar:  1.2g/L


WINESTATE 4.5-stars (May/Jun '20): "A lovely style with a very aromatic sweet guava bouquet. The well-structured palate is soft & generous with an excellent complexity of flavours."
