Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc

Cracka Rating

Cracka Review

In the heart of the McLaren Vale the Woodstock winery are producing wines that the region is famed for. Striving for the utmost quality is their mantra and that’s something that we completely understand. There’s more Semillon in the blend yet the tropical aromas of gooseberry and passionfruit leap out the glass. A really, bold crisp and refreshing palate, the Semillon offers structure and lingering citrus flavour. As refreshing as driving through the region in a convertible as the cooling breezes caress your face.

Winemaker's Notes

Intense passionfruit, gooseberry and lychee aromas leap out of the glass invitingly. Refreshing traces of green apples, nashi pears and lifted citrus notes are evident. The Semillon provides complex tropical flavours, which are round, full and juicy, balanced by lingering zesty acidity on the finish.

Food: Linguine pasta with Spencer Gulf king prawns, rocket and chilli or Coorong mulloway dumplings served with a wasabi leaf salad.

Jeremy Oliver (2012 Vintage) says
Long and lean with a lightly herbaceous fragrance of pristine tropical fruits, passionfruit and gooseberries and a lively, finely chalky palate whose juicy flavours culminate in a briney, savoury finish of lemony acids.

Passion fruit pungency, stone fruit, slightly sweaty in the zone sauvignon blanc. Light and fresh with fair length of passion fruit flavours and youthful fresh finish. Keeps the alcohol down and stays on the light, bright fresh and crisp road. Vegetarian dishes and any thing with fresh tomato.

A brisk citrus and tropical fruit nose on this McLaren Vale white, which offers some blackcurrant too, as well as wild lavender and grassy elements. The palate's along the same thread of flavours, not especially concentrated, but clean and crisp all the same.

Fresh, dry and tangy, with an intense, lightly herbaceous, grassy scent of tropical fruits and passionfruit before a juicy palate whose mouthfilling flavours of guava, paw paw and passionfruit are backed by a hint of grassiness, finishing long, bright and chalky, with a tangy, lemony acidity.

Very light straw-green; light, crisp, mineral, grass and herb all pick up on the finish and aftertaste.
