MIKE’S WINE NOTES:
Mike Davies – Wine Maker – Founder Greenskin Wine
Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon are two varieties that have been blended in their traditional home of Bordeaux for hundreds of years. Sauvignon Blanc’s light body but pungent bouquet benefits from the mouth-filling body and honeyed tones of Semillon to provide another dimension and texture to what otherwise can be a bit simple.
Bruce Dukes & Remi Guise from Naturaliste Vintners have done it again for us for this 2021 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon. They have expertly wound the complimentary characters of these varieties (66% Sauvignon Blanc, 34% Semillon) around one another to produce a very modern & sassy version of one of the wine worlds’ classic blends.
- Colour – Pale Straw with light green highlights.
- Bouquet – A delightful fusion of green herbs, Indian tonic and golden honey.
- Palate – The palate is limey and juicy combining the grassy tart profile and lightness of the Sauvignon Blanc with the richer honeyed and slightly butterscotch characters of the Semillon leading to a balanced and satisfying medium weight wine.
