Wine tasting notes

Pale in colour with green hues. The aroma is typical Margaret River Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon; passionfruit, guava, lemon and bay leaf/herbal characters with some smoky barrel ferment complexity. The barrel fermentation also adds a creamy, waxy middle palate texture, and the citrus edge to the acidity keeps the wine balanced.

Expert Reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (2014)85 pts

Aug 2014 - Reviewer : Lisa Perrotti-Brown. The 2014 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon has a vibrant nose of green apples, gooseberries and waxed lemons, with a herbal undercurrent. Light to medium-bodied with a crisp backbone of acidity, it fills the palate with uncomplicated apple and freshly chopped herb flavors before finishing long.

James Halliday (2016)90 pts

Bright green-gold; this well put together wine has some fresh lemon and citrus aromas together with a touch of greengage. The wine has good mouthfeel and it finishes crisp and moderately long.

Vinification Notes

The new Sideways Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blend is typical Margaret River, sourced exclusively from specially chosen vineyards in the Margaret River region.
