Our Award winning 2012 Shades Sauvignon Blanc Semillon rated 93/100 by Ray Jordan.
"A striking fruit-driven sauvignon blanc semillon blend. Positively bursting with ripe tropical fruit cascading over the palate, the opening is a real fruit bowl with a lift of passionfruit and then, into the palate, the scrumptious fruits really excel. Simply gorgeous fun drinking. Drink while all these fresh goodies are so prominent. 93/100
