Wrights Gisborne Semillon/Sauvignon Blanc 2013

Semillon from New Zealand - Gisborn
Review Date : 18-Jun-2014
Bright, full and even light-gold colour, pale on edge. The nose is softly full and ethereal with subtle and integrated aromas of cooked gooseberry fruit, tropical and green stonefruits, and nuances of savoury herbs. The bouquet builds in depth and unfolds gentle layers of interest. Dryish to taste and full bodied, mellow flavours of ripe gooseberries, nectarines and herbs are detailed with savoury stalky and nutty notes. The palate is fulsome and features a core of grainy phenolics and brisk, bracing, underlying acidity that forms a deep and driven line. The wine carries to a robust and grippy, mouthwatering finish. This is a full, solid Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc blend with soft, savoury fruit and a grainy textured, crisp palate. Match with Mediterranean fare over the next 2-3 years. Hand-picked fruit, 60% Semillon and 40% Sauvignon Blanc from the ‘Terrace’ vineyard, Ormond, the Semillon WBP and fermented in seasoned oak with partial MLF and batonnage, and the Sauvignon Blanc WBP, given skin contact, and aged in seasoned oak. This is 13.5% alc., and off-dry. Certified AsureQuality organic. 15.5+/20 Jun 2014 RRP $28.00
