Singlefile Fume Blanc 2011 (Margaret River, WA)
12.7%, Screwcap, $30
Big heavy bottle and quite ornate packaging on this. Massive punt too. The wine though just looks oddly… lacking. 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Semillon with 30% aged in one year old oak.
Tinned pineapple, a little creamy lift of oak. Looks fresh but
pineappley, the palate is short and quite sweet, the oak sitting on top of the fruit quite a deal. It’s like oak sweetened pineapple juice, with a little citrussy juiciness underneath. Surprised at the lack of definition actually especially considering that fruit would have been picked early. 15.8/86
