Cape Naturaliste Semillion Sauvignon Blanc 2021
55% Semillon / 45% Sauvignon Blanc
Yield: Semillon -7 tonne/hectare Sauvignon Blanc -7 tonne/hectare
Soils: Loam over clay
Winemaking: A 10% parcel of barrel aged Sauvignon Blanc in Grande Reserve French Barriques was added to achieve a fuller mouth feel and provide more depth of palate and softening acids.
Tasting Comments: Like the above Sauvignon Blanc the SSB is just as fabulous with lots of limes, grapefruit, gooseberries, citrus, peaches & hints of green apple. these fruits carry through to the palate with the citrus characters dominating, giving this a well integrated acidity, big fruit and herbaceous flavours. For an easy drinking wine the palate length is endless, the finish is clean and fresh. Bring on sitting on the back deck of a boat.What a great year for Semillon in particular, this stella blend always delivers year after year. We see the same characters of the above Sauvignon Blanc but with fresh cut grass from the Semillon and floral notes distinct to Margaret River. The small portion of barrel fermented Semillon softens the palate with a slight creaminess but still allowing the above mentioned fruits to carry through to the palate with the citrus characters dominating .The finish is well rounded, long, full flavoured, fresh and mouth watering. In our house it is known as Jen’s ironing wine and apart from menial chores it is fabulous with food, friends and anything else that helps you get through the day….
