2020 Harewood Estate Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
All Prices shown are GST Inclusive
The fruit for this wine was grown in cool climate maritime vineyards situated in the Denmark sub-region of the Great Southern wine region in Western Australia – a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon.
Only the finest, more “pristine”, free-run juice was used resulting in a wine of outstanding elegance and purity, free from any harsh, phenolic characters associated with grape skins.
A cool ferment in stainless steel, minimal fining and the use of screw caps are all further steps towards capturing the inherent delicacy of this cool climate blend.
A brilliant, pale straw colour with youthful green hues.
An intense, pungent nose displaying gooseberry and passionfruit with hints of tropical fruit and grassy citrus notes.
The use of only free-run juice is reflected in the seamless purity of the palate. Mouth-watering citrus fruits are balanced by more tropical passionfruit and pineapple notes. Hints of flint and spice in the mid-palate lead to a lingering fine finish of grapefruit.
