2019 Cullen Grace Madeline Sauvignon Blanc Semillon - Margaret RiverRegular price $40.00
Pale straw in colour, aromas of white flowers, passionfruit, limes, nettles and green mango. Still young enough that the acid sings. Flinty minerality provides a base for flavours of citrus mainly lime, nettles vanilla bean and a raft of other tropical fruit flavours. This is rich perfectly textured and easily drinkable white wine. People forget the magic that occurs when you give a White Bordeaux blend time in oak. Quite yummy and will be for over a decade.
"Lime, passionfruit, guava, nettles, fennel, and plenty of clove spice and smoky oak. Juicy, green mango and lime, a bold burst of flavour, with a firm chalky texture, pulls more tangy, with pink grapefruit and sweet spiced oak, and a very long finish. Intense now, and very good, though it feels very much a wine for considered cellaring."
