Saracen Estates Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2011 Vintage) says
Pale colour, vibrant green hue; a ripe and generous bouquet of straw, tropical fruit and bath talc; the palate is taut and energetic, with good concentration, lively acidity and a finely balanced finish.

Ray Jordan (2011 Vintage) says
Opens with a lively smoky herbaceous aroma showing some light lemony influence. Palate is intensely flavoured with a lip-smacking passionfruit flavour. A zippy fresh acid sustains things. Nice current drinking wine.

WINESTATE (2011 Vintage) says
Pleasantly delicate, perfumed floral aromas and a pretty citrus/floral palate that has lovely vibrancy and crispness.

WINESTATE (2010 Vintage) says
Fresh, lifted, bright sherbet style with good balance between the varietal fruit, acid and subtle oak characters.

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Pale green-quartz; a quiet bouquet is rapidly followed by an energetic palate with a full array of herb, grass, citrus and redcurrant flavours; long, brisk finish. Trophy Margaret River Wine Show '10.

Ray Jordan (2010 Vintage) says
This is only a small production wine which is a shame because it's a delightfully friendly zingy little number offering some great summer drinking. Vibrant tropical and lemon citrus tang on a light bodied palate.

James Halliday (2009 Vintage) says
Pale green-quartz; a tightly structured and focused blend, with some of the green pea of the sauvignon blanc, lemon citrus added by the semillon; has good drive and length.

Ray Jordan (2009 Vintage) says
Opens with delightful perfumed herbal notes of fresh cut flowers and a little touch of lavender. The palate is super friendly with vibrant crunchy fruit sustained with a fine delicate acidity. Rounded with a light dusty herbaceous snow pea lift and underlying tropical fruits.

James Halliday (2008 Vintage) says
Quite a rich and ripe style with tropical fruit in abundance, offset by a touch of netde; the palate is thickly textured on entry, but moves to a lighter conclusion; an interesting style

Light and fragrant classic blend offering stacks of zippy bracing appeal. It's brimming with herbaceous snow pea and tropical fruit characters lifted with a crunchy and tight with a piercing acidity

Appealing broad and developing smoky aromas, and pleasant herbal notes to the citrusy palate.

James Halliday (2006 Vintage) says
Very well-made; lovely interplay between barrel-fermented semillon and stainless steel-fermented sauvignon blanc; intense passionfruit and grass flavours without heaviness, and a long, fine finish.

James Halliday (2003 Vintage) says
Similar fruit characters and structure to the Sauvignon Blanc, though tightened slightly by the minerally, clean finish of the Semillon; should evolve well.
