Oates Ends Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2020

The 2020 combines the zesty citrus freshness of Semillon with the exotic passionfruit and guava of Sauvignon blanc. Fermentation and ageing on yeast lees in seasoned oak adds layer of creamy texture to the wine. This complex style of Semillon Sauvignon blanc will match most foods, particularly those with layered flavours and spices.  Although released ready to drink it will reward some long cool cellaring, gaining interesting waxy and lemon rind flavours with age.

 

Mike Bennie - The Wine Front. 93 points. "A barrel fermented rendition of the classic.  Stylish wine, super delicious. Crisp edges with light creaminess inside, the scents and flavours of tropical fruits, bay leaf, cut grass and white pepper with the faint trill of cashew. Compact and racy to taste, pent up but with good energy, tight finish and refreshment in spades. Elegant SSB here. Very good fruit, very good feel. I suspect will cellar short term well too." 2020-2025

Angus Hughson – Wine Pilot. 93 points “It is almost too much with explosive aromas of passionfruit and guava – like you’d expect from Marlborough. There are also hints of green herbs, lanolin and hay with subtle vanillin French oak also in the mix. Right now it is then dry and angular on the palate with fruit all wound up in a core of biting acidity. The wine is long, tight and pure right now and will make for a refreshing drink this Spring and Summer. But it will be much better given a couple of years when the layers of complex fruit emerge to showcase how good Margaret River white blends in the right hands can be, such as those of leading local winemaker, Cath Oates.” Drink 2022-2026 7/7/2020
