The 2020 combines the zesty citrus freshness of Semillon with the exotic passionfruit and guava of Sauvignon blanc. Fermentation and ageing on yeast lees in seasoned oak adds layer of creamy texture to the wine.

This complex style of Semillon Sauvignon blanc will match most foods, particularly those with layered flavours and spices.  Although released ready to drink it will reward some long cool cellaring, gaining interesting waxy and lemon rind flavours with age.

 

Angus Hughson – Wine Pilot. 93 points “It is almost too much with explosive aromas of passionfruit and guava – like you’d expect from Marlborough. There are also hints of green herbs, lanolin and hay with subtle vanillin French oak also in the mix. Right now it is then dry and angular on the palate with fruit all wound up in a core of biting acidity. The wine is long, tight and pure right now and will make for a refreshing drink this Spring and Summer. But it will be much better given a couple of years when the layers of complex fruit emerge to showcase how good Margaret River white blends in the right hands can be, such as those of leading local winemaker, Cath Oates.” Drink 2022-2026 7/7/2020

Winemaker Notes
The 2020 vintage will be remembered as one of the earliest in memory. A warm and dry spring got things moving early in the vineyard. Continual settled and warm weather throughout the ripening period has given wines of intense flavour with moderate alcohols and balanced acidity. A truly brilliant vintage for the region, the wines from this vintage will rate highly.
