Description

This Mount Barker The Peak Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2017 is characterized by weightier fruit and a more textural palate than previous years and a residual fruit sweetness but is balanced out by a refreshing natural acidity.  Subtle passionfruit and lemon curd carry the palate through to fresh basil on the finish.  The acid lingers on the finish for a persistence of flavour.

We have been lucky to secure a good parcel of this superb SSB from one of the regions premier producers who are rated a perfect 5 red Stars by James Halliday.
