Yarran Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2012

A new label to me, operating from out of NSW's Riverina region.  The Brewer family have been growers for over 30 years, when son Sam undertook a winemaking degree at CSU the decision was taken to make some wine under their own label.

Sam has gained significant experience across the region, in addition to the Yarra, King and Sonoma (US) valleys.   He joined the family company as full-time winemaker in 2009.

Wine shows good tropicals on the nose: passionfruit, guava - and backed up be fresh citrus.  There's hints of fresh stonefruit in there too - all up an attractive summery proposition.

More of the same carries through the palate, mineral and acid present too with green topical notes.  Shows good acidity from the Semillon along with sharp bite in the form of green apple.  Clean and refreshing - good Summer option.  89 - Good
