Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Western Australia
Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc have found a perfect home under the favourable maritime climes of Western Australia's premier viticultural precincts. Crafted from the pick of harvests by the award winning Capel Vale team, totally fruit driven and completely unoaked, Debut is remarkable as much for it's marriage of ripe tropical fruit flavours with greener vegetable characters, as it is for it's clean, crisp and elegant styling.
Capel Vale have grown enormously, one of the few major family owned wineries in Western Australia, they own and operate seven vineyards in the four EU registered growing areas in the state's southwest, each site is planted to varietals which are most appropriate to the climate and terroir. Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are harvested at optimum ripeness, crushed and de-stemmed, the musts are chilled and dejuiced. After three days of cold settling, juices are racked off and an aromatic yeast is introduced. Fermentations are halted early to aid in preserving the natural grape sugars and to add body and enhanced fruit character to the finished wine. Alcohol 13.5%
