Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc
Pan fried King George Whiting.
Lifted fruit aromas of citrus and passion fruit, are perfectly layered with delicate aromas of fresh lemongrass and cucumber.
The tropical fruits, lemongrass and citrus on the palate, is supported with spicy creamy oak, from partial barrel fermentation, allowing great aging ability.
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.
