I actually had to call the importer to find the blend of grapes that is used in this wine; 50% Chardonnay, 40% Semillon and 10% Sauvignon Blanc. I picked this up when I was looking for something new to try from 'Down Under' and I actually loved it.

This wine is a very drinkable everywhere wine, where the Semillon brings out a dry aspect, downplaying the Chardonnay, but the Sauvignon Blanc gives a little citrus kick to at the end. The taste is well rounded, building up in the middle and not letting off, but easing off gradually with a finish of a good 30 seconds. I would say that I can taste some peach mixed with apricot, but that the citrus component could be swaying my taste.

I am amped to try their red wines next!
