Appearance: Bright and shiny, white gold with silver hues. Nose: The nose is a perfect painting of our Margaret River surroundings- a patch of ancient earth surrounded by vast oceans where fresh, crisp saline scents of the sauvignon blanc meld with the earthy unctuosity of the semillon. The nose is intense with nuances of yellow peach, rockmelon, passionfruit, lemon zest and juniper berry aromas, topped by a hint of white pepper corn. Palate: The first approach is very fresh with excellent vibrancy and tension, developing into citrus and melon characters. The wine is then textural and unctuous, ending with a long, zesty finish accompanied by a line of minerality that brings us back to the ocean cliffs and Margaret River mouth.

Wine EnthusiastWaxy lemon, wet wool, apple blossoms, grass and dried herbs form on the nose. The medium-bodied palate offers a chalky texture, with a lemony zing that leads to a herbal and mineral finish. This is a food friendly wine that would be tasty with goat cheese.

Wine AdvocateThe blend of the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon is 61% Sauvignon Blanc and 31% Sémillon. It's leaner and greener than the 2016, with hints of snow pea and fresh herbs added to crisp, citrusy aromas and flavors. It's light to medium-bodied, offering plenty of refreshment but not much texture or complexity. Drink it over the next year or two.
