2015 Si Vintners "White" Margaret River Western Australia (Biodynamic) (Previously $25)

SKU #1313537 91 points James Suckling

 An unfiltered semillon chardonnay that has plenty of character, showing a light golden bronze hue. It's a riot of bright lemon, grapefruit and peach; has plenty of texture and impressive concentration of flavor. Drink now, brilliant value here.

K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "A blend of Semillon and chardonnay, this fruit was hand harvested, whole bunch pressed and naturally fermented in a mixture of concrete eggs, large format french oak and stainless steel. Kept on lees until just prior to bottling. Bottled unfiltered and unfined, no additives only a minimal sulphur addition at bottling." 90 points Wine Front: "Spicy kind of intro to this wine - gets you worked up for the hit of lemony, green apple-driven flavours that follow. Very crispy in texture with a kind of wild, loose-knit feel. So refreshing, more so for that brisk, saline tang that follows. Whip that palate clean. Zing, crunch. Super. Chardonnay and semillon seem to be easy bedfellows, particularly for early complexity for ready consumption and interest. Semillon is fermented in concrete eggs and hand-harvested from the Si home block, chardonnay from a vineyard managed by Iwo and Sarah of Si."

Australia

- 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 wine regions are in the southeastern area of the continent, including Barossa Valley, Clare Valley, McLaren Vale, and Coonawarra in South Australia; Yarra Yarra Valley 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 and Sauvignon Blanc from the land Down Under, where Riesling also enjoys international acclaim. 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.
