Uncompromisingly intense, reflecting the low alcohol and underlining the green lemon zest and mineral flavours. Would be very good with spicy Chinese/Asian food.Australian Wine Companion 2011 2010

Tasting Notes: This 2016 Longview blend is comprised of 66% Semillon and 34% Sauvignon Blanc. The concentrated herbaceous, asparagus, green bean of the Semillon is tempered by the restrained tropical fruit of the Sauvignon Blanc. A refreshing elegant palate with citrus, cut grass and a balanced crisp finish.
Vintage Notes: 2016 was another excellent vintage in which the early ripening varietals of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon thrived. The growing season gave us a warm start, before becoming cool which resulted in amazing quality of fruit and excellent flavours at low sugar levels.
Winemaking Notes: The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon fruit was sourced entirely from our own Longview Vineyard, we chill the must to 10°, the juice separated and skins gently pressed. Bentonite fining and coarse earth filtering ensures a clear, bright finish.
