Tasting Notes

A vibrant blend, our Outback Semillon Sauvignon Blanc displays aromas of passionfruit, lemon zest and fresh parsley. The palate begins with lime citrus and honey dew which quickly transgresses into tropical flavours such passionfruit. Crisp acidity provides excellent length with a freshly cut green apple finish.

In the vineyard drought conditions provided warm and dry weather in the Riverina. Yields were a little low and some heavy rain before vintage affected some of the earlier varieties, with alcohols a little lower than expected. The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes were harvested during the night in February. Upon arrival at the winery, the fruit was crushed, destemmed and chilled to our bag presses. After pressing the juice is clarified, then fermented at temperatures of 14° – 16°C using a carefully selected yeast to optimise varietal expression. Finally, the wine is blended and filtered for bottling as soon as possible to retain freshness and crisp fruit flavours.
