Watershed Shades Sauvignon Semillon CONFIRM VINTAGE

Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Margaret River Western Australia
Watershed's vineyards were established within the dress circle of stately Margaret River wineries, at the intersection of Darch Road and Bussell Highway. The climes here are an idyll for holiday makers and alfresco living. They are also heaven sent for viticulture and world class wines. The universally appealing accord of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc is one of the stylistic marvels of Margaret River. Watershed is fresh and vibrant, offering tangy passionfruit and grapefruit characters, clean, lingering and crisp.
Watershed is one of the few major estates in Margaret River with a capacity to assemble the most equitable harvests of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc. Watershed's viticulturalists were responsible for the single largest initial vineyard planting in the region. With well over a hundred hectares under vine, Watershed is able to isolate the best sites for white grapes, resources which dwarf some of the region's largest boutique vineyards. Following a vintage determined by optimal levels of ripeness and the perfect ratios of fruit sugars to acid, Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc are crushed and inoculated, vinified at controlled temperatures, followed by assemblage into a classically fruit driven dry white.
Pale straw in the glass. Aromas of lime blossom, lychees and gooseberry, intense citrus, grapefruit and guava bouquets are complemented by the grassyness of Semillon. Fresh and vibrant palate, exhibiting luscious passionfruit characters, tropical fruit flavours leading to a crisp lingering finish. This quenching Margaret River white is deliciously ready to be enjoyed now, excellent in it's youth, a suitable companion to good food, particularly fried fishes or Asian faire.
