Johnny Q Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc 2012

Adelaide Hills, Australia

€13.99

Bracing, cool white with a grassy nose of lemon verbena and elderflower. The midweight, dry palate shows a clean line of acidity, impressive minerality and mouthwatering flavours of gooseberry and mandarin. Very pure and polished style.

Lovely on its own but would go superbly with fish and chips or Vietnamese food.

A Bordeauxesque blend of 55% Semillon and 45% Sauvignon Blanc, this wine was fermented using specially-selected aromatic yeasts that accentuate primary fruit characters. Only the highest quality 'free run' juice (i.e. the juice that drains naturally after the initial crushing of the grapes) is used; the coarser 'press juice', which contains more undesirable phenolics and other harsh compounds, is sold on to the  bulk wine sector. 

Adelaide Hills is part of the Mount Lofty Ranges zone of South Australia. Both the region's closeness to the state capital, Adelaide, and a prosperous local tourist industry have boosted the GI's wineries. Key to the area's success is the height of its vineyards, which varies from 400–500m, i.e. cool climate. It is considered a premium, quality region for the delicate Sauvignon Blanc variety.
