Sweet lifted fruit with notes of citrus blossom and a fine savoury freshness are immediately apparent on the bouquet. There is also an interesting touch of cloves indicating the barrel fermentation of a considerable part of the Sauvignon Blanc.

The Sauvignon Blanc 52% - Semillon 48% is ideally drunk with a full bodied shellfish such as lobster or poached scallops with lemon beurre blanc. Also an ideal apéritif wine.

Located in the southwest area of Western Australia, the country's largest state, Margaret River wine growing region is on a peninsula jutting out into the Indian Ocean.

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
