Flametree Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2017
The 2017 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon was picked at reasonably low Baume, capturing fine high-note aromas, crisp primary fruit flavours and good acid structure. The Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc juices are then fermented under cool conditions using specially selected yeasts to ensure the varietal characters are accentuated. This wine was fermented without the use of oak for pure fruit expression. The wine was then fined, filtered and bottled in August.
The nose on the 2017 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon shows plenty of varietal fruits in the kiwi fruit, lemon grass, passionfruit and lime spectrum. Semillon's citrus and floral notes are complemented by the tropical passionfruit aromatics of Sauvignon Blanc. Cool nights, a hallmark of the vintage, has harnessed plenty of fresh, crunchy fruits and wonderful crisp acidity. The 2017 Embers Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a versatile wine that could be enjoyed as an aperitif or with almost any modern food of your choice.
