Tasting Notes: One of Australia's pioneer wineries and Margaret River's founding wine estate. A sophisticated interpretation of this popular Margaret River blend, the 2016 Sauvignon Blanc Semillion has a distinct, alluring nose suggesting baked chicken and vegetable pie with warm herbed bread that evolves over a few minutes to reveal underlying paw paw, kiwi fruit and savoury herbs. The entrance is crisp and crunchy with a succulent mineral, mid-palate and a very long flavoursome finish. Hints of the dusty, savoury herb in the aroma are present, but it is powerful lime and blackcurrant that form the core of the wine, with subtle French oak spice and structure bringing an extra dimension of quality. Enjoy with fresh fruit salads, light fish dishes, or as an aperitif.
