Smithbrook Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Vintage 2013 Region Pemberton Varieties Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Vintage Notes

This excellent Sauvignon Blanc Semillon blend is entirely sourced from the original Smithbrook Vineyard planted in 1988. The Sauvignon Blanc is planted largely on well-drained north-facing gravel and is cane-pruned to allow optimal flavour and acid development in this cool region. The 2013 vintage started out wet and cool but developed into a benevolent white growing season. This allowed the winemaking and viticulture team to pick the fruit in individual batches at optimal ripeness delivering pristine, fresh punchy flavours as juice. These juices were then fermented cool and slowly to best capture the fruit purity and crispness from these excellent grapes. The result is a wine that we are proud to release under the Smithbrook banner which is fresh, zesty and pure and will provide great drinking pleasure over the coming months.

Analysis

Alcohol 12.5% alc, pH 3.22, TA 7.4 g/L

Tasting Notes

Colour                        Extremely pale with brilliant flashes of green. Aroma Lifted aromas of lime, gooseberry and passionfruit. These characters are underscored and complex with subtle notes of regional minerality and citrus blossom. Palate Fresh and zesty with mouth-watering acidity and a long, crisp finish. Flavours of passionfruit, guava and brown lime give the palate drive and great fruit intensity while hints of tropical sweet fruits add to its fruit-driven appeal. This finishes dry and clean leaving the palate refreshed and ready for more.

Cellaring

This wine is released ready to enjoy but will continue to evolve further complexity and fruit weight over the coming 18 months.

Established in the late 1980s by wine legend Dr Bill Pannell (Moss Wood, Picardy), Smithbrook was the first major vineyard in the Pemberton region. The subsequent involvement of Brian Croser (Petaluma, Tapanappa, Decanter Man of the Year 2004) has helped cultivate a vineyard that produces fruit of the highest quality and delivers an outstanding range of Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot varieties.   In 2010, Smithbrook was acquired by Peter and Lee Fogarty, making the vineyard a part of the family-owned and highly regarded Fogarty Wine Group. As part of the Group, Smithbrook has continued to be a pioneer in the Pemberton region, with each of its wines capturing the essence of what this beautiful area has to offer.
