Cullen Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2017 13% 750ml

Cullen Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2017 13% 750ml

Delightful combination of fresh-cut grass, spicy and vanilla oak aromas supported by tropical notes.
Vibrant fruit lifted by citrus nuances. Very complex already with lovely stone fruit nuances and toasty characteristics. Barrel fermentation is seamless and playing second role. A brilliant example of this classic blend.

Expert Review:
James Halliday- 95 Points, A 79/21% blend, wild-fermented, 45% of the sauvignon blanc matured in oak (7% new). It is the sauvignon blanc that gives the wine its richness, in turn due to the Cullen Vineyard source. Tropical fruits are the drivers, guava and lychee joined by citrus. Complex yet refreshing.
