Winemaker's Notes

Coriole Semillon Sauvignon Blanc has been produced since 1995. It is a fresh fruit style where the wonderful base of McLaren Vale Semillon gets aromatic lift with Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc. The Semillon comprise fruit from the Coriole vineyard, a Coriole neighbour and that from a third McLaren Vale vineyard. The Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from Lenswood in the Adelaide Hills. This old world blend is particularly well suited to the maritime climate of the two regions.

This wine has a rich bouquet with very fresh flavors. The Semillon gives a great base and texture with the zest of Sauvignon Blanc adding liveliness and a crisp finish. The blend gains by exploiting the best characteristics of each region and what it offers each grape variety, giving more interest and complexity than many varietal Sauvignon Blancs. This blend has fresh fruity aromas of lycee apple and quince. It is a dry style with fullness and long texture. There is a distinct apple scent in the aftertaste. With its fresh clean fruit-driven flavors, this wine is ideal with seafood and fish, white meats, cream pastas and antipasto.

I'm definitely more of a red wine drinker, but now and again, I like a nice, fresh white. This IS that nice, fresh white! Light and fruity, this is very crisp with a fine, full flavor and a complex mouth feel for a white. The aftertaste is, for a white, long and full. Definitely recommended!
