Moss Wood Ribbon Vale Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2009
Bordeaux White Blends from Margaret River, Australia
Medium straw color. Very fragrant with lifted gooseberry fruit aromas, accompanied by floral notes of apricot and peach blossoms and perfumes reminiscent of jasmine.
It continues the freshness and lift of the nose. The fruit flavours are intense gooseberry and passionfruit and which combine with crisp acidity to give lift and length.
The Wine Advocate - "Moss Wood’s 2009 Ribbon Vale Semillon Sauvignon has intense aromas of lemon juice, pineapple, grapefruit zest and fresh grass. With a good backbone of high acidity, this medium to full bodied wine has good very concentration and a long finish. Drink it now to 2014. "

About AustraliaLike the United States, which is about the same size, Australia's winemaking regions are huddled into one or two pockets of the country. The state of South Australia, which produces about 60% of the country's wine, also has the most wineries and sub-regions, including McLaren Vale, Clare Valley, Coonawarra and Barossa Valley. New South Wales is home to the Hunter Valley, while the smaller, southern state of Victoria is best known for theYarra Valley. Head way west to the very large state of Western Australia and you'll find the tiny region of Margaret River at the southern tip.

Alcohol By Volume GuideMost wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
