2016 The Alchemists Premium Block Selection Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
Wine Rating 
 
93

A light yellow in the glass the nose has piercing tropical fruits with top notes of boysenberry and a savoury herbaceous edge. This wine is punching above it’s weight at $19 with a palate that walks the tightrope between youthful exuberance and a fuller, richer experience.

There is a grassiness to passionfruit with taut green apple giving diversity to the mid palate and richer lanolin notes giving depth. Driving citrus acidity and peppery boysenberry frame the finish.

Drinking well now, but will reward time.
