2011 Nicholson River Winery Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

These two varieties are a classic combination best known from regions such as Margaret River. This wine comes from the other side of the country, Victoria's cool climate Gippsland Region and is quite a different creature from examples out west. 

Straw yellow in colour with a pale green hue. Crushed lime leaves, green beans and grassy aromas. Palate has green capsicum notes with a strong herbaceous and tropical guava fruit element. Fresh and zingy throughout with a crisp long finish. A light- to medium weighted dry wine.

The Sauvignon Blanc brings the fruit and crunchy acidity to the party while the Semillon, from the winery's 36 year old vines gives the blend ageing potential and its solid structure. A stylish drop.
