Semillon Sauvignon Blanc Riverina New South Wales
Forty percent less carbs and joules? Yes it's true! Two Thirds is a low alcohol, low carb dry wine, assembled from the two most popular and complimentery of all white grape varietals, Semillon with Sauvignon Blanc. Suitably mated for their mutual compatability, highly prized for their luscious fruit characters, enjoyed everywhere as the most appealing contemporary style of crisp and dry, exuberantly refreshing white wine.
A new wine by one of the Riverina's leading estates, it'll excite those who are venturing out for a lighter style with less alcohol. Through early harvest and skilled vinification, the award winning Trentham team have fashioned a luscious young white with only 8.5% alcohol, two thirds the strength of a normal wine. Grapes are harvested early in the vintage from vines which are specially trained, throughout the cool of early morning, at the precise juncture where sugar levels are low and flavour development has peaked. Grapes are crushed, chilled and gently pressed, the juices are settled and fermented to dry. Young, vivacious and completely unoaked, Two Thirds is bottled early to retain freshness. Alcohol 8.5%
Pale lemon hue. Two Thirds shows light lime and lemon aromas with fresh tropical flavours, quinces and grapefruit, vegetables and herb. It's rich with minerality and fills the palate with its weight of fruit, finishing satisfyingly dry and crisp. Juicy and revitalizingly fresh, ideal as an aperitif and unbeatable with avocado pasta or chicken caesar.
