Wine Of The Week

Lenton Brae Semillon Sauvignon Blanc, Margaret River 2014, $24

This is a superb example of the blend that Margaret River made famous. The lemony bouquet incorporates nuts, toast and vanilla from development and perhaps a touch of oak barrel. Intense, focused, refined and long palate with a seamless texture and no hint of greener flavours. (13.5 per cent alcohol; screw cap.)
