Willow Bridge's ever-likeable 'SBS' blend is always one of the country's true bargain white wines. As in previous vintages it has all those lively, juicy citrus and tropical fruit flavours you'd expect, with distinct notes of grass, herbs and spice adding a really intriguing backdrop to the vibrant fruit. With a small portion fermented in French oak (combination of new and old), there's a subtle but noticeable texture and weight to the palate. If you're after a big, rich and intense white then this isn't for you, but for an everyday-drinking house white you'd do well to find a similarly priced blend more balanced and downright drinkable!
What it Tastes Like
The nose is subtly tropical with distinct grassy and herbaceous notes. The palate is extremely fresh and lively, with citrus and tropical fruits. It has a lovely soft and round mouthfeel, with a crisp, citrusy finish.
94 points "Mainly tank-fermented, part in barrel. This has exceptional flavour and texture, the latter adding an edge to the fruit expression. The bouquet, too, is complex and edgy, pointing to fragrant herbs, capsicum and an overarching mix of citrus and tropical fruits." - James Halliday (Australian Wine Companion)
