Winemaker Mark Messenger (at leading Margaret River winery, Juniper Estate) has weaved his magic with this fine white blend (64% Semillon and 36% Sauvignon Blanc).
From another excellent Margaret River vintage, this lovely fresh fruity style of wine shows passionfruit, gooseberry, green apple, citrus fruit characters along with jasmine, lemon grass, capsicum & a touch of fresh herbs. The mouth filling palate is smooth and very textural being full of juicy fruit with hints of herb and spice with a long and refreshing finish. 10% of the semillon was barrell fermented in mostly new French barrels to aid in building extra texture and palate weight.
92 Points Nick Stock Good Wine Guide for 2012 “A standout for value and a fresh, clean-cut style, this delivers an amalgam of stone fruits, citrus and tropicals on the nose. The palate’s smooth and even, offering soft, pillowy flesh with citrus tang, peach and green mango to close. Terrific.”
90 Points, Ray Jordan WA Wine Guide for 2012 .. “Bursting with tropical fruit from that first invasion of the senses. It’s fruit and thoroughly delicious with a lively passionfruit dominance with a healthy squeeze of citrus. Lovely generosity on the palate with the acid holding it tightly to a long finish. Excellent stuff.”
