2011 Amelia Park Sauvignon Blanc-Semillon Margaret River Western Australia (Previously $20)

SKU #1112021 92 points James Halliday

 Pale quartz; an elegant light-bodied wine that creeps up on you, gently unfolding lime, apple and passionfruit on the palate, the acidity precise and balanced.  (9/ 2011)

K&L Notes

In the southwestern corner of Western Australia, the warm maritime climate and gravel and sandy loam soils make ideal conditions for the production of intense and structured wines from Bordeaux varietals. Three exceptional vineyards from the Margaret River are represented in this 2011 Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon blend. Warm mid-summer temperatures coupled with they typically cool ocean influences are captured in the fresh elegance of the finished wine, which features a very modest alcohol level. From the winery: "We are aiming for very clean, fresh and crisp characters in this wine. Aromas of passionfruit and pear and a lively crisp palate of lime and green apples are the marks of this classic Margaret river blend."

- While it is true that the greatest strides in Australian winemaking have come in the last 30 years or so, commercial viticulture began as early as the 1820s and has developed uninterrupted ever since. The majority of the great Region are in the southeastern area of the continent, with the Barossa Valley, Claire Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia, the Yarra Yarra Velley and Pyrenees in Victoria and the Upper and Lower Hunter Valleys in New South Wales. Many of the wines from Southeastern Australia are based on Shiraz or Cabernet Sauvignon and various blends including Grenache and Mourvedre. In Western Australia, along the Margaret River, great strides are being made with Pinot Noir as well as Bordeaux-styled reds. There are also many world-class releases of Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc and Riesling from the land Down Under. While many equate Aussie wines with "value", there are more than a few extremely rare and pricey options, which never fail to earn the highest ratings from wine publications and critics throughout the world.
