West Cape Howe Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
Arguably our most popular wine, all the Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc fruit is sourced from cool climate vineyards in the South West of Western Australia. Close to a 50:50 blend, the Sauvignon Blanc provides the fresh herbaceousness while the Semillon provides the lemony flavours and the good palate weight. Harvesting at night, fermenting at cool temperatures and bottling early ensures we retain maximum fruit flavour and vibrancy in this wine.
Blend: Semillon 60%; Sauvignon Blanc 40%;
Colour: Very bright and clear with just the tiniest hint of green/gold.
Aroma: Has a fresh, aromatic nose with an immediate ‘grassy’ hit from the lifted Semillon component together with a hint of asparagus and light tropical fruit from the Sauvignon Blanc.
Palate: Delicious drinking! It has excellent zestiness and fresh herbaceous flavours together with a good palate weight. The lovely acidity contributes to the very good persistence of flavour. Our SSB is crisp and fruity with a pleasingly dry finish. Best enjoyed while fresh and young wine.
Cellar Potential: Best enjoyed while young.
