2021 Snake & Herring Perfect Day Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Margaret River, WA

Is it a perfect day for a quality glass of Margaret River SBS? Look out the window...if it is day or night, you're good to go.


Fresh and frisky.

Aaron Brasher (The Real Review)

About the Wine

Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon have always gone together like avo & toast. It's a classic blend, full of vibrance & freshness, that the Margaret River region does oh so well.

The Snake + Herring Perfect Day SBS is a bangin' expression - featuring tropical guava with Aussie citrus flavours, supported by a little flinty hit and slightly creamy elements from partial barrel ferment for both varieties.

This is spot on for drinking right now, and at this price it's hard to resist!

About Snake and Herring

Snake and Herring was founded in 2011 by two wine industry junkies, Redmond “Herring” Sweeny and Tony “Snake” Davis.

Compelled to walk away from their professional roles at the same time, Redmond and Tony decided to embark on a journey to create their own wine label. Over a parcel of epic Porongurup Riesling, an idea began to form. Many late night texts were exchanged and early morning vineyard rendezvous arranged and before long Snake + Herring was created and a Porongurup Riesling born.

Additional Info

From the Producer

The Perfect Day is tightly wound yet expressive. Punchy limeskin, bay leaf, grapefruit and guava fruit leaps from the glass. The first sip shows the linear structure: citrus acidity with slight toasted hazelnut barrel ferment texture. Long and clean finish is perfect for the summer. Perfect for necking with fresh Albrolhos sashimi.

Critic Reviews

The Real Review

"Lively aromatics, passionfruit, lemon, white flowers, green melon and white pepper. The palate is full-flavoured and focused, cut grass, lemon rind, guava and nettles. Fresh and frisky." - Aaron Brasher (The Real Review)

Halliday Wine Companion

"78/22% sauvignon blanc/semillon, all fruit from Karridale. All of the semillon, and 50% of the sauv was wild fermented in barrel, and kept on lees for 3 months. Saltbush, white peach, green apples and fennel flower make for a gently complex and very pretty wine with good length of flavour and fine chalky phenolics. Pretty fantastic delivery of experience for the money." - Erin Larkin (Halliday Wine Companion)

Can coupons and discounts be stacked? No, only one discount or coupon can be applied to an order at once.

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me? This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine. The good news is we may be able to order more for you. Just contact us on 02 8376 8775 or and we'll organise the additional quantity for you.

Does Different Drop have a physical store? No. Just an a warehouse/office. We occasionally do events however, so sign up to our newsletter or follow us on instagram to stay in the loop.
