Franklin Tate Estates Margaret River Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2018
Australia / Western Australia
Andy's Tasting Notes
A super elegant, very crisp, dry and lithe blend with cool and pure hints of citrus, herb, lemongrass and passion fruit.
Production notes – “The Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon were processed individually with some skin contact in the grape press. Following settling the wines were racked and inoculated for ferment in stainless steel vessels. A combination of yeasts were used to enhance the varietal characters and to produce fresh, fruity, clean wines. Fermented at cooler temperatures for the preservation of fruit aromas and flavours. After a few weeks on yeast lees, the wines were racked and the individual components assessed and blended.”
