Willow Bridge Bookends Fume Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2012 (Geographe, WA)
12.2%, Screwcap, $25
Hand-picked, whole bunch pressed, wild fermented and matured for 9 months in oak, this is awfully fresh and vital for Geographe. More Margaret River vital than Geographe really, overlaid with solidsy winemaking overtones but also restrained, fresh and light, with somewhat firm acidity. Such freshness! Perhaps a little oak phenolics, but wonderfully fresh and quite long.
Really impressive. High fives indeed.
Score: 18/20, 93/100
Would I buy it? Yes.
