Sorrenberg Beachworth Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2017


"So good.....Composure. Grace. Drinkabilty. Just superb"  Gary Walsh

So good. It’s subdued and winey, smooth and silky, with a fresh gooseberry tang, fennel and citrus, and finishes with a twist of tonic bitterness. Composure. Grace. Drinkabilty. Just superb. Tasted: Feb 18; Alcohol: 12.8%; Price: $40; Closure: Cork; Drink: 2018-2024; Rated: 96 Points; Gary Walsh; The Wine Front

This wine comprises of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon. Most of the Sauvignon Blanc fruit had 8 hours skin contact prior to pressing. The Semillon component is crushed and pressed immediately after picking. This wine was 100% barrel fermented with predominantly larger barrels used. All went through natural yeast fermentation. The extended lees contact helps fill out the middle palate and gives this wine the extra dimension it is known for.
