Complex white blend

Pierro LTC Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2016, Margaret River, AUD $33.50

Always a cut above the opposition for its intensity, ripe fruit savouriness and lack of green elements, this is a wine of concentration and depth. Dry grass, hay and subtle lemongrass aromas; intense and lively in the mouth with vibrant acidity and extra length. (Screwcap)
