Willow Bridge Dragonfly Sauvignon Blanc Semillon 2014
I’ve always thought that these Willow Bridge Dragonfly wines are much better than the naming and label suggests. I hate to say it, but they almost feel like ‘critter’ wines, and a quick straw poll of some friends who I showed the wine too thought the same. Less Dragonfly, more Willow Bridge methinks..
This is a fresh little number too – lemon-lime, juicy melon fleshy fruit and sprightly lemon acid. Pleasant, clean, refreshing and has more drive than many similar sub $20 Sauv/Sem blends, complete with a quite long finish.
Forget the label, this is genuinely good WA white at a very fair price.
