Yarra Yarra Sauv Blanc Semillon

The 2004 Yarra Yarra Sauvignon Blanc/Semillon is different from the usual examples of this variety, e.g. from Western Australia. It is less citrussy, less grassy. It has oak treatment and as a result is much smoother and softer a drink. It can be cellared for a number of years.

The wine is made much more in the French tradition than in New Zealand style. It was an enjoyable drink, accompanying some sushi really well.
