Deep Woods Ivory Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

The onslaught of NZ Sauvignon Blanc continues apace so it's worth remembering that wines like this are still around - well made, fresh and simple white wines that showcase early picked grape freshness and winemaking biased towards retaining freshness. The end result is crisp, grapey and utterly refreshing, if not as cool as old Marlborough Sauvignon.

Winemaker's Notes

Appearance: Very pale in colour with green hues.

Nose: A lifted nose exhibiting passionfruit, guava and lime blossom.

Palate: Intense citrus flavours abound on the palate, with a deftly intertwined lacing of herbaceous crunch adding complexity. A zesty and refreshing acid backbone provides structure and length.

Deep Woods Ivory Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Expert Reviews

Ray Jordan (2011 Vintage) says
Fresh and a daisy and bright as a button. This continues to super run of this great value for money white blend. It's pristine and pure with a lively tropical passionfruit character on the nose and a zippy racy acid sustaining a refreshingly long palate. Excellent current drinking.

Since its takeover by the Fogarty Group in 2005, Deep Woods has thrived and the Ivory blend has become fresher, more vibrant. Inder winemaker Julian Langworthy, who impressed at Wynns and Knappstein, Deep Woods continues to excel. It is situated in Margaret River's northern reaches close to the town of Dunsborough. The 2011 Ivory is clean and lively with intense sugar snap-pea flavours, a green-bean edge, and refreshing acidity to finish.

Fresh crunchy vibrant blend with abundant lively tropical flavours balanced by an appealing herbaceousness. It's balanced and flavoursome with a crisp finishing acid. Just a little squeeze of lime juice livens up the palate.

This is classic Margaret River in a bottle, with plenty of leafy fresh herbs, fresh-cut grass and a mix of citrus and tropical fruits on the nose. The palate's supple and fleshy, building some handy weight through the middle, and delivering planty of tropical-fruit punch and a crisp, clean finish. Just what the doctor ordered!

This is a delightfully fragrant and highly perfumed blended white. It is delicate yet there is ample fruit intensity on the pure and clean palate. Nice touches of passionfruit, snow pea and lemon zest with a just a hint of enticing herbal character. Easy drinking in the short term.

Herbaceous style thats long and well balanced and showing hints of gooseberries mixed with mown lawn and just a whiff of citrus blossom on the finish.

Relatively light-bodied, some tropical fruit notes alongside more citrussy/herbal flavours on the back-palate.

An intense, almost explosive palate, driven by grassy/citrussy semillon; great with Asian foods, spice no limit.
