wine notes

2014 19 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

The Fruit:

The fruit for this wine is sourced from the premium regions of the Barossa and Eden Valley’s in South Australia. The Barossa experienced a cool, dry winter with below average rainfall which
was further compounded by extremely windy conditions leading to some poor fruit set and smaller berry size. The resulting low crops and small berries ripened perfectly however giving rich,
concentrated flavours and excellent acid retention. This classic blend is made up of 92% Semillon and 8% Sauvignon Blanc

The Winemaking:

A combination of hand (20%) and machine (80%) harvesting was used to obtain the grapes. The hand harvested fruit was whole bunched pressed, while the machine harvested fruit was destemmed without crushing (Semillon) or crushed (Sauvignon Blanc) to expand flavour intensity. Fermentation occurred in stainless steel tanks at approximately 10 degrees over a period of 21 days. 12% of the Semillon was fermented in old French oak to increase complexity. The wine was then matured on yeast lees until blending and bottling..

The Comments:

The 2014 Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is a fresh and vibrant blend of old-vine Barossa Semillon and cool climate Eden Valley Sauvignon Blanc from an outstanding vintage. Pale straw in colour the nose is richly perfumed with intense citrus aromas of lemon and fresh lime from the Semillon, while the Sauvignon Blanc imparts zesty herbaceous notes and ripe tropical aromas such as paw-paw and guava. The juicy soft mid palate has intense flavours of sweet tropical fruits and crisp citrus that flow seamlessly through to a refreshing finish. An easy to drink style of wine that is a great accompaniment to Thai style chicken salad dishes.
