2018 Sea Urchin Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
A long winter and cool summer allowed gentle ripening of white grape varieties in 2017. This produced excellent conditions for the slow ripening of perfectly balanced Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. The fruit showed an ideal sugar to tartaric and malic acid ratio which expressed a fuller spectrum of fruit flavours.
Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon was harvested and pressed in the cool of night to retain freshness and to keep each parcel sound for settling and fermentation. Inoculation was performed in stainless steel tank by a selected yeast strain while keeping each variety separate until blending. Post fermentation each tank was left for up to one month on yeast lees to add complexity and weight to the palate.
A bright crisp and delicately textured wine. Pale straw with a green tint. Classic Sauvignon Blanc flavours of passion-fruit, lychee and guava meld seamlessly with Semillon characters of fresh straw and lemon. The resultant wine is in the true classic Margaret River style -crisp, mouth-watering and refreshing.
This classic West Australian blend is a fruit driven, thirst quenching and refreshing drink. Easily enjoyed on its own, as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to fresh seafood and Asian cuisine.
