2020 Cullen Grace Madeline Sauvignon Blanc Semillon - Margaret RiverRegular price $42.00
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.
"Slippery textured with just a little bit of pucker and grip to finish. Lots of regal scents, exotic stone fruits, chamomile, fine honey, toast and balsa wood. Flavours are tightly bound, stone fruits again here dashed with spicy wood elements. Citrusy too, and there’s lovely creaminess in the mix. Fresh feeling. Concentrated but lifts and refreshes the palate. A feast for the senses, really. A beautiful, medium weight white wine, good now, great later too."
