2020 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
Varietals (%’s): 64% Semillon; 34% Sauvignon Blanc; 2% Chardonnay
Appearance: Brilliant, pale straw yellow with green tints.
Aroma: Fresh & vibrant aromatics of citrus, pear and guava overlay subtle herbal spice and lemon curd notes.
Palate: The palate has lovely texture, weight and balance – lovely fruit weight combines with texture and mouthfeel garnered from partial barrel maturation and time on lees. A bright lemon acid line provides refreshment, length and persistence.
Oak Detail: The Sauvignon Blanc portion of the blend was fermented and matured in a combination of new and seasoned French oak, while the Semillon was fermented cool in stainless steel tanks to retain freshness and aromatics. Maturation on ferment lees contributed to texture, mouthfeel and overall complexity.

Food Pairing: A perfect accompaniment to tempura battered King George whiting fillets with a squeeze of fresh lemon.
