The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes were harvested off the Montague Home Estate, then crushed, clarified, and fermented separately in stainless steel tanks. 20% of the unclarified Sauvignon Blanc juice was wild fermented in seasoned French oak puncheons to develop texture and complexity, before being blended back with the tank components 4 months later, just prior to bottling.
Whilst there are classic French hints in this white Bordeaux blend, this 2021 release of Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is unmistakably Margaret River. The nose opens with a wreath of pretty Jasmine flowers and apple blossom before swirling into the classic passionfruit and kiwi fruit on the palate. The faintest hints of fresh pea shoots and green tea crowned this beautiful summer wine. Crisp acidity ensures focus, structure and length making it perfect with food or without.
