Willow Bridge Estate Bookends Fumé Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2013

"Old friends, 
old friends 
sat on their parkbench 
like bookends"
~ Simon & Garfunkel, Old Friends

Creaminess imbued with a little smoke tells you much about how the wine was handled. And also tells you that the Fumé moniker is genuine and not some marketing gimmick.

Smooth, tang of citrus to freshen; textural, fresh - adding that little extra to the wine - very well made. Seasoned, adds depth, length and life. 

Generous in length, has something ahead of it for sure. 92
