Appearance: Pale straw, brilliantly bright with a slight lemon tinge.
Nose: Aromatics reveal fresh nettle and ripe tropical fruits. Lightly toasted oak adds an extra dimension and depth.
Palate: A focused wine that displays citrus, grassy and subtle lime zest flavours. Deftly selected and handled oak provides vigour and complexity. Refreshing tangy acidity brings life to the finish.
Cellaring: This wine is ready for immediate drinking however has the structure to evolve slowly over the next 7 years.
"Aromatics are reminiscent of limoncello, lemongrass, loquat, hay and honeysuckle. The palate has all the zing and freshness demanded of the style, with an extra layer of flavours and modest richness. Think concentrated lemon, kaffir lime, mandarin pith, wax and subtle toast. Competes very favourably with many of its prestigious Margaret River neighbours". 92/100 - Paul Edwards, The West Australian 25/11/23

"The Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2023 is very good. Tastes of green apple, oear and some grassy notes. Oak fermentation and ageing provides extra weight and complexity but the wine remains fresh and vibrant." - Fergal Gleeson, greatwineblog, Aug 2023
