Moss Wood Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2011
This wine is light straw colour, with green tints; bright condition. The nose has lifted and zesty fruit aromas, showing the full array of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc - cut grass, lemon juice, passionfruit and fig. The initial impression on the palate is crisp, fresh acidity that combines with medium body to give a refreshing lightness. The flavours are lime, green apple and fig, followed by a clean finish with no astringency.
