Winemaker's Notes

The Poacher's Blend is a classic Australian medium dry white made for immediate enjoyment.

Blended from Chenin Blanc, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes picked in the cool of night it is a crisp, clean wine that is an easy drinking delight. Full flavored with lifted tropical, lime and citrus flavors St. Hallett has created this wine to marry with the freshwater crustaceans and fish that are regularly "poached" from the creeks and waterways of landowners in the country and believed to be a legitimate, heritage pastime in Australia.

Alternately as an aperitif, or with a variety of fish and seafoods the Poacher's Blend is a bright enticing mouthful of Barossa flavor.

very nice; medium bodied with a citrus start and a snappy lemon/lemongrass midpalate and a nice smooth tangy finish. Perfect for pool sipping or lite fare. Good complexity for the price point (<$15)

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.
