Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, RM118 (Country: Australia)

Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, RM118 (Country: Australia)

Grape Variety: 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 75% Semillon

This wine was made from premium Semillon grapes planted in 1988 for its ability to express tropical fruit aromas and flavors. The Sauvignon Blanc was sourced from nearby Blewitt Springs and adds flavor intensity and texture. 

The blend is compose of 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 75% Semillon. This wine is in bright very pale straw color with water like hue. Fresh, grassy, unripe gooseberry and tropical fruit nose, showing good varietal character, however, there is little power or strength. Light gooseberry and tropical fruit aftertaste.

A good starter for any conversation and it’s an easy going wine especially for the ladies because the palate is balanced and refreshing. Here is our food paring with Woodstock Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
