An oaked, textural, Sem-Sauv-with-the-lots style this combines the acidity that the Lenton Brae whites are famous for, with an extra layer of richness and fullness. The net result is full and clean and long and plain delicious.
Lenton Brae has an unrivalled fidelity with blending Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc in Australia. In 2007, Lenton Brae celebrated 21 consecutive vintages of its Semillon Sauvignon Blanc. To mark this achievement, Lenton Brae produced a reserve wine blended from these two varieties; the 2007 Wilyabrup Semillon Sauvignon Blanc. As the wine proved to be so popular, we have decided to make it a permanent offering.
Aromatically, the wine displays restrained lemon and citrus notes with a subtle, savoury oak influence. On the palate, the wine’s entry is soft and creamy and finishes with bright acidity and persistence. Approachable now, the wine will soften and continue to integrate in the medium term, though it has the fruit concentration to suggest long-term cellaring is possible.
