TOP RATED SAV BLANC SEM BLEND in James Halliday ‘s BEST OF THE BEST 2013 Wine Companion and 96 points.
James Kellie (formerly of Howard Park) has done incredibly well here producing extraordinary intensity of fruit in this semillon sauvignon blanc blend. 100% free run juice from fruit sourced from higher altitude cool coastal sites of Denmark in WA. A portion of each variety was barrel fermented in large French oak to give texture. Minimal fining. Intense nose producing aroma/flavours of lemon zest. snow peas. gooseberries. fresh herbs and tropical fruit. This mouthwatering wine is extraordinary …palate is sweet fruited. textured. long and fine.
96 points James Halliday … “Restraint and perfume are not the usual hallmark of this blend in Australia. but this example is fragrant. perfumed and enticing. gun flint. tropical fruits. namely papaya and a fresh edge of nettle. the palate is sweet fruited. textured and long. fine and evenly poised. restraint is definitely the key here. ”
