2018 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

2018 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

 The grapes for this wine were sourced from Lyndsay's sister, Eira Thomas  Vineyard on the Naramata Bench. The grapes for this wine were handpicked, whole-cluster pressed, and fermented slowly at low temperatures, (12 degrees celcius) to preserve the aromatics. Fermentation took 28 days to complete. Post fermentation, the wines were blended together to make this wine reminiscent of a traditional Bordeaux blend.

Tasting Notes
This wine is a reminiscent of a traditional white Bordeaux. On the nose there are aromas of lemon grass, gooseberry and guava with grassy and herbaceous notes. On the palate there are flavours of white pear, mango and lemon-lime. This wine is fresh and zesty, with a nice crisp finish.
