The Islander Estate Wally White Semillon

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

This semillon hails from Kangaroo Island and is made by a French guy in the style of his homeland - Bordeaux. It's a dry, oaked style that shows lots of stone fruits, citrus and touches of toastiness on the nose, whilst the palate is more medium-bodied and peachy, with licks of buttered toast and vanilla, a lemony line of acidity, and a dry, fresh finish. This will benefit from a touch of cellar time, but would be great with roast chook tonight.

Winemaker's Notes

The Islander Estate Vineyards is located near Parndana, an area originally cleared for farming by Soldier Settlers.

Appearance: Brilliant yellow, mellowing to gold as the wine ages.

Nose: Complex and inviting nose showing aromas of lemon rind and white peach with a hint of creaminess.

Palate: Semillon’s characteristic lemon notes are underscored by a tangy spice. This is followed by a rich but elegant finish with some creaminess and even a hint of spice from the oak. A mouth-watering textural chewiness makes Wally White an excellent wine for the dinner table.

Food: This wine pairs up particularly well with vegetable casseroles and most fish and chicken dishes including mildly spiced curries. It also drinks beautifully on its own.

Cellaring: Drink now or cellar to 2020.
