Vasse Felix Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon 2012

Sauvignon Blanc from Australia - South Australia
Review Date : 13-Jul-2013
67% Sauvignon Blanc and 33% Semillon, fermented to 12.5% alc., 15 % in 87% new French oak, the wine aged nearly 5 months in barrel. Pale straw with some green hues, the Sauvignon is quite subtle on bouquet, which is more expressive of Semillon, lantana and barrel-ferment aromas, the oaking noticeable. Dry and medium-full bodied, the palate shows herb and lantana flavours, gently herbaceous and grassy, with a restraint tending austere. Underneath there is good power and texture with good drive. Reminiscent of white Bordeaux. This will keep well over the next 3 years. 17.5/20 Jun 2013 RRP $29.95
