Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc
Pan fried King George Whiting
Matured in French oak.
Pale straw core with a greenish hue.
Lifted fruit aromas of green apple, rich passion fruit, lemon citrus and spice, are perfectly layered with delicate aromas of freshly cut grass and crisp green snow peas and green capsicum.
A medium bodied wine with ample flavour and fruit intensity. Fleshy passion fruit and melon is supported with fresh green apple acidity. Hints of lemongrass on the front palate and spicy nougat oak on the back, this wine is clean and lively with well-balanced complexity.
The Sauvignon Blanc was harvested in late February and the Semillon early March in the cool of the night. The grapes were crushed and lightly pressed under inert conditions to avoid any extraction of harsh phenolics and oxidation. The juice was clarified, warmed and inoculated for ferment. A combination of yeasts was used to enhance the varietal characters and to produce fresh, fruity, clean wines. The ferments were held at a cool 14°C and lasted an average of 14 days. A portion of the wine was matured with French oak. Then the individual components were assessed and blended. The blend was given a light fining before being filtered and prepared for bottling.
