A.Retief Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2011

A blend of 70% Canberra Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Hilltops Semillon.  A good Bordeaux blanc style, barrel work evident on the nose, supporting peach, honeydew melon, with fresh accents of lemon.  All up, a good intro.

Clean entry, feathered textural feel - by which the wine spreads across the palate - good texture.  Touch of weight too, acid channeling the wine, inducing salivation.  Clean, fresh, more-ish - a wine I readily went back to.  Great with some simple grilled fish.  89 - Good.
