Origin: Margaret River
Region: Western Australia
Grape(s): Sauvignon Blanc + Semillon
Style: Medium-bodied skin-contact wine
A very elementary version of a skin-contact white. Deep golden yellow in the glass. Some oxidized apple on the nose complemented by pleasant florals. Palate is rich and textural, wtih tons of herbaceousness hitting at first, but the tropical fruit from the Semillon rounds this out nicely. A pretty wine, something to start your orange wine journey with.
