Carillion 2019 Expressions Semillon Sauvignon Blanc
This perfect summer wine showcases the union between Hunter Valley Semillon and cool climate Sauvignon Blanc from Orange. The classic blend fuses the bold tropical and gooseberry aromatics so typical of Sauvignon Blanc with the mouth-watering lime and zingy acidity of Hunter Semillon.
Established in 1994, the Hunter Valley vineyard, Tallavera Grove, enjoys a warm coastal climate specializing in the traditional local varieties of Semillon, Verdelho, Chardonnay and Shiraz. The Carillion Vineyard, located on the slopes of Mt Canobolas, personifies the hype for cool climate wines coming out of the Orange region. The key to this area is the cool to cold climate and high altitude, meaning it enjoys an extended growing season with plentiful sunlight hours.
