Caves Road Classic White Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc, Margaret River

Caves Road Classic White Sémillon-Sauvignon Blanc, Margaret River

Fruit from the length of the Margaret River region is sourced for this wine, combining the richer flavours of the warmer north with the racy acidity of the grapes grown in the south of the region; here the grapes are cooled by the Southern Ocean breezes as they ripen. This wine is a blend of 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc; the grapes being picked in the cool of the morning in separate parcels, in the early part of the vintage cycle. The fruit was then gently pressed and fermented in stainless steel to retain the fruit’s freshness. The refreshing palate shows Semillon’s strong citrus aromatics which are given further complexity by passion fruit and blackcurrant flavours from the Sauvignon Blanc.
