Windowrie The Mill Orange Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2011, Orange, NSW

2013-05-11 18.20.18

Paid $11 from GetWinesDirect (it’s down to $8 now). Fruit was harvested during the cool of the night from 20+ year old vines that are of low yield. A product of several blending trials and previous versions were dominated by Semillion. Pale straw yellow colour. Lifted youthful aromas of passionfruit, green lime rind, and crushed Kaffir lime leaf. Dry, full-bodied white wine with an abundance of acidity. A very fruity wine, passionfruit and lemon flavours nicely melded together. I’m pleasantly surprised by the quality of this wine, easily enjoyed by most. This is great value at this price. Have with a meaty white fish like kingfish or swordfish steaks garnished with lots of chilli. Drink now. 89/100.
