2005 Umamu Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
12 x 750ml Bottles
Winemaker's NoteColour: - A clear vibrant pale straw.
Nose: - Intense, some herbaceous and green fruit notes. Honey bottle age characters, nice development which is typical of semillon.
Palate: - The mouth feel is full and soft. Front mid back palate, good intensity. Semillon contributes texture, a little toastiness, stone fruit characters and showing benefits of short-term ageing while the Sauvignon Blanc exudes perfumes of exotic fruits. The wine has a crisp acid backbone with a fruity and textural finish. Oak is a submissive partner but gives definite backbone to the wine.
Mouth watering citrus dominated palate with traces of nectarines, fig and honey melon fruit gently supported by vanillin and toasty oak notes.
