Tatachilla Growers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

If you think of wines in terms of occasions, then this is the perfect all rounder. It will fit in with every crowd no matter what the celebration. It offers all round approachability, full-flavour and makes a good match for a variety of foods. Perfumed with citrus and floral aromas before a crisp, refreshing palate of tropical fruit. Serve chilled with a fresh seafood spread.

Winemaker's Notes

A refreshing blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc results in a wine that’s easy to drink and perfect for a lazy afternoon lunch in the sun. The name for this wine was inspired by the small band of dedicated Growers who supply Tatachilla with full flavoured grapes from premium South Australian vineyards. This is the fruit which goes into the creation of this consistent, generous and easy drinking white blend.

Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2010 Vintage) says
Early picking has invested the wine with some racy, grassy, minerally freshness, the light fruit in a citrus rather than tropical spectrum. The back label suggests salt and pepper squid or bruschetta.

Clean and fresh, with citrus and lemon flavours running through to a crisp, clean and dry finish.

Fanchon Ferrandi and her team have produced a very attractive blend from McLaren Vale fruit. It's lifted, vibrant and tangy, has persistent, cool tropical characters and a lingering dry finish that is crisp and fresh

Exceptional value for a wine that has an abundance of gently sweet tropical fruit offset by good acidity; good length. Value

Fanchon Ferrandi continues to do excellent work at this popular McLaren Vale winery. As you'd expect from a winery that sources most of its fruit from this warm region, I've preferred the budget-priced reds - under the 'Keystone' and 'Partners' labels - to the whites. This is the best 'Growers' white blend I've seen from Tatachilla: it has more depth and varietal character than the previous five vintages of the wine. The 2006 Growers is clean, fresh and delightfully tropical; tight, lean and lively, finishing with crisp racy acidity.

The unsung heroes of the wine industry are the critics. JUST CHECKING WHETHER YOU'RE AWAKE! No, it's the growers and it's nice to see a winery take the time to recognise that with this zippy fresh white. Especially since makers and growers have been at each others' throats, following some rather insensitive comments made by one or two of the big makers. Insensitive? Dumb, actually, because it is a cyclical industry, and what goes around...

A clean bouquet; herb, grass, asparagus, snow pea and lemon all to be found; good length, likewise value.

The march of the SSBs continues, just as the march of SBS gor a leg-up in June when that soccer thing was on in Germany. I loved the World Cup and I reckon the bloke who made this wine would have as wellÑhis name is Fanchon Ferrandi, and if that's not the name of an Azzuri fan I'm a monkey's uncle. The wines from Tatachilla have been doing extremely well in my tastings this year, and this is the perfect salt and pepper squid wine.

Max Allen & Peter Forrestal (2001 Vintage) says
This is a pungent, unoaked blend from the McLaren Vale's Tatachilla which shows cool, grassy flavours, lightness of body and a zesty, clean finish.
