Allegory Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Allegory Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

Allegory Sauvignon Blanc Semillon – The racy, vibrant blend of this  Sauvignon Blanc Semillon is the essence of everything good about Western Australia and our special coastal vineyards. Two great grapes harmoniously combined to produce a riotously fresh, fragrant and friendly wine. The pairing of these two famous grape varieties has, over time, evolved into the region’s signature white wine – nobody does it better!

Sauvignon is the star of the show. Upfront, fresh, lovely, highly aromatic, very showy. Semillon, on the other hand, is all about weight and viscosity, length and structure. The more reserved character, behind the scene, holding the show together.

Clear and pale straw in colour with lovely fresh fruit aromas of guava, pear and lemon zest tickled with wafts of jasmine florals. The palate shows apple, pear and passionfruit notes around a key lime citrus background. A bright, juicy wine with heaps of fruit flavour and a zesty acidity.

Since 1992, Allegory have been producing an exciting range of contemporary, cool climate wines inspired by the wild, coastal and pure characteristics of Australia’s South West. Ranging from a vibrant Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot to a sweet Moscato, the flavour of the fruit is the primary character for all the Allegory wines.

Allegory

Allegory is a range of expressive varietal wines that showcases the elegance and vibrancy typical of Western Australia. They are made by Howard Park, a family-owned winery founded in 1986, and one of the state’s best respected producers. Howard Park have a unique combined expertise in both the Margaret River and Great Southern regions, and by carefully blending selected parcels of fruit from each, they allow Allegory to capture the essence of Western Australia.

Western Australia

This state is a relatively small contributor to the country’s grape plantings. However it does not stop the state being responsible for some of the finest wines coming out of Australia. This region clearly has a turning point in its wine producing status. Research reports from Californian viticulturalist Professor Harold Olmo, in the 1950s, and the Western Australian scientist Dr John Gladstone, in the 1960s, indicated that the more southern cooler regions of Western Australia where very well suited for production of world quality wines. Now these regions: Margaret River, Great Southern and Pemberton are the major wine producing regions of Western Australia. Margaret River region is now one of the premium regions of Australia and regarded along with Coonawarra and Yarra Valley as one of the three premium Cabernet Sauvignon areas in Australia.
