Mirabella Vineyards Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2010

Five generations of history in wine has culminated in the production of "wines that are the very best and affordable to all".  This particular example is a Single Vineyard wine drawn from 80 year old vines.

The wine opens with grassy herbaceous aromas typical of Sauvignon Blanc with some lifted citrus aromatics from the supporting Semillon.  The palate delivers varietal tart citrus, providing some thrusting acidity.

The acid in turn provides some breadth: filling the cheeks and lingering in a pleasant manner

In summary this wine delivers what it aims too: quality at a good price.  Varietally correct; the constituent parts are harmonious and in balance with each other.  Recommendation is to chill down and pair with seafood or a summer salad.
