Semillon sauvignon blanc

New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc = can of lilt. Let’s put on Hawaiian shirts to get tropical. If you prefer green pepper to guava but love the spritz acidity in an NZSB, then a Sauvignon blended with Semillon may be right for you.

This is a blend of white Bordeaux grapes, which are Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.

This is a great team. It’s like when Dolly plays the high notes, and Kenny plays the low ones in Islands In The Stream. Semillon gives it a weighty, waxy, smoky body and smokiness. It makes the wine more complex and rounder. This creates an entirely different style of wine from the typical Sauvignon Blanc.

This Kelly Washington beauty comes from the Wairau Valley in Marlborough, New Zealand. It is biodynamic and organic. This wine is both refreshing and salad-like. It is a small package available at Ake & Humphris, Harrogate. Grab it now before they sell out. You can also try it out on my online New World Wine and Cheese Tasting in September. It’s awesome.
