FRASER GALLOP SSB
The debate rages as to the merits of Semillon dominance versus Sauvignon Blanc dominance in the white Bordeaux varietal blends. Fraser Gallop believe that by creating a wine dominant in Semillon they highlight the strength of the variety in the Wilyabrup sub-region. The relative warmth of the area compared to the southern sub-regions allows us to ripen the Semillon beyond the herbal elements, achieving golden bunches with a strong citrus flavour. This is complemented by the Sauvignon Blanc whichis sourced from further south in Karridale. Coming from a cooler area it has zesty acid and punchy aromatics giving the wine some lovely passionfruit and gooseberry notes on the nose.
