Juniper Estate Crossing Original White 2023


Organic viticulture is practiced in the vineyards providing the fruit for this Sem Sauv blend, we have 65% Semillon and 35% Sauvignon Blanc. 10% of the Semillon was fermented in wood (an increase from past years) with the rest of both varieties in stainless steel tank. The portion of Sem which saw barrels was whole bunched pressed and wild fermented. An appealing pale lemon colour, the nose exhibits a mix of herbal, blackberry and grassy notes with some tropicals, notably hints of passionfruit. There is a little extra weight here, with a nice flick of acidity and reasonable length, if offering a slightly abrupt finish. Enjoy it now and for the next twelve months.
