If there’s a region that does the SB/S blend….it’s Western Australia. Great Southern gets an even crisper acidity than the seaside Margaret River.
West Cape Howe, Two Peeps, Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Albany, 2016
Woody, stalky, asparagus spears, blackcurrant leaf, passionfruit seeds, spent teabag, lime leaf. A smooth and easy palate full of citrus zest and a distinct earthy note. It carries itself a little weightier than most due to a small parcel of barrel work for the SB but well balanced with the cut of Semillon. A very good expression of the style.
