Expert Reviews

James Halliday (2004 Vintage) says
Crisp, clean semillon dominant, but with some sweeter gooseberry notes.

This blend of 70 per cent semillon and 30 per cent sauvignon blanc has a dominant portion (54 per cent) from Margaret River and a cool tranche from the Great Southern (26 per cent). You may need to give it a swirl to open it up but you'll be rewarded by some attractive grassy aromatics. It is fresh and vibrant with intensely grassy flavours and a crisp, fine finish.

I have promised this year to make no reference to Olivia Newton John, roller skates or Cliff Richard in this reviewÑso I won't. What I will say is that this wine is fresh as the smile on Cliff's face whenever Sue Barker comes over for a prawn cocktail. What does that mean? Heaven only knows but this zesty, grassy, delicate little wine will keep you smiling through the confusion.

This is less obviously aromatic - less of those grassy, passionfruity characters - than the other two bloody good wines here. But it has a good, flowery aroma and lovely depth of fruit flavour in the mouth. As the wine is sealed with a screw top, those flavours may be taking a while to appear, but we suspect they will emerge in a few months. We also suspect that this fullness and weight would make it a great accompaniment to a robust fish curry or pan-fried swordfish or other meaty fish fillets -maybe with a herb sauce like pesto or salsa verde. Yum.
