Forest Hill Vineyard Boobook Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

If we had to perfect a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon we’d jump on a plane to W.A. In Mount Barker a sub region of the Great Southern conditions are cooler, ripening times longer, ensuring the grapes have that much more flavour. This is fleshy with the vibrancy of nectarines, cut grass and a burst of tropicality. It’s crisp and fresh with integrated acids that produce a refreshing fruity finish. Drink it chilled now, with friends and a plate of oysters.

Winemaker's Notes

Colour: Brilliant light straw.

Nose: Lifted aromas of white nectarine, guava and pear with fresh hints of lemon blossom, fresh cut grass and green capsicum.

Palate: Fresh, vibrant palate with flavours of lemon zest, pear and guava carrying through to a generous finish of freshly cut grass and mineral notes. The mouth feel is fleshy with good weight featuring all the way through the palate. The acid is beautifully balanced and well integrated, providing a crisp, fresh mouth feel. This wine is best enjoyed in its youth, and will develop more palate richness and subtle spicy flavours over the next 3 years.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
A bright and fragrant bouquet with floral aromas ranging from herb to citrus sustained on the long palate by minerally acidity and a twitch of lemon zest.

Ray Jordan (2009 Vintage) says
A pure and keen blended white from down in the Great Southern. Intense and persistent palate a strong feature. The acid is crisp and the fruit has a slightly creamy texture lifted with a little squeeze of citrus juice.

Ray Jordan (2008 Vintage) says
Crisp fruit blend displaying a fine balance of light tropical fruits and grassy herbal characters. It stacks up as a value-for-money current drinking wine.
