This is one of Willow Bridge's signature wines and they make a very good fist of it. Year in, year out, this is one of the country's most bankable Fume Blanc styles of wine. Oaked, but wonderfully balanced Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is a joy to drink when it's done right. The Willow Bridge team has nailed the 2016, it receiving 95 points from James Halliday along with the comment that it is indeed, "A wine of character and quality." as well as picking up the Trophy for Best Dry White Blend at the 2016 Royal Adelaide Wine Show. Great value for lovers of textural whites.
