Singlefile Estate Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2008 (Denmark, WA)
The nose shows very light green grass & fresh passionfruit, infused with musk, leading to a palate that is surprisingly full and intense, with citrus & grapefruit fruit cut with guava. It all finishes with sprightly, zingy acidity, with more musk rounding out the tail.
I like the hidden power on display here – the nose is quite feminine and that pristine green colour seems to suggest something delicate and watery, yet the palate is spiky and surprisingly mouthfilling. It could do with a little more definition, but a good first up release. Would be a very fair drink at the $19 mark. 16.8
