Bress Silver Chook Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

Bress is not only a Victorian winery, but also a famous blue-legged French chook. It's highly sought-after and is very lively as chooks are, just like this frisky sem sav. The fruit is sourced from the epicentre of sem sav blends - Margaret River - and shows aromas of citrus and tropical fruit on the nose, whilst the palate is bright and crisp, with melon and citrus flavours, zippy acidity, a slightly creamy texture, and a dry, juicy finish. It would be the bomb with seafood.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Pale golden straw with youthful green tinges.

Nose: The wine offers a complex array of fruit aromas of green skinned fruit, grapefruit, lemon and tropical fruit. There are subtle oak aromas of char and spice.

Palate: The wine is made as a very attractive spring and summer time Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and has fruit flavours of lemon, grapefruit and tropical fruits. There is a textural mid palate richness evident in the wine due in part to its barrel-fermentation. The finish is unctuous and well rounded.

A vibrant, crisp, clean and direct blend, grass, herb and lemon driving the energetic palate while leaving room for its gooseberry/passionfruit coating.
