2016 The Alchemists Reserve Eliixir Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
Wine Rating 
 
94

This is a Sem Sav Blanc with all the trimmings with quality fruit and clever winemaking on show.

A light yellow in the glass, there is a grassy and herbaceous edge to the nose that’s tempered by lanolin and citrus.

Lemon curd with a restrained creaminess plays perfectly against tart citrus acidity and gentle tropical fruits on the palate. The mid palate brings in a more savoury, oak and lees induced thread that frames citrus and quince to finish.

A delicious example of the variety.
