2022 Filius Sauvignon Blanc Semillon

A sophisticated, pure and expressive interpretation of this popular Margaret River blend with enticing minerality and savoury undertones.


Tasting Notes
APPEARANCE Pale straw-gold. NOSE Immediately lifted, perfumed and floral with varietal purity. Fresh lime curd, passionfruit pulp, guava and honeydew melon with hints of cashew butter. Exotic savoury aromas of spring herbs, freshly picked dill, white jasmine and waxy flowers begin to emerge with time in glass. PALATE Soft and luscious upon entry, generous guava and grapefruit with a rounded, fleshy fruit profile. Structure is provided through a quenching preserved lemon acid-line, with gently puckering persistence rounding out an extremely moreish palate.
Winemaker Notes
WINEMAKER'S NOTES Refined winemaking techniques have better developed the exciting complexities built into the powerful, aromatic and structured fruit of Sauvignon Blanc, which is complimented by the tempering delicacy of our best parcels of Semillon. The portion of Sauvignon Blanc fermented and matured in new French Oak puncheons has added subtle toasty notes and complements the succulent fruit on the palate with weight and structure. A portion of wild fermentation results in better expression of our true vineyard character, giving the wine a more savoury and solid core. The wine is aged in oak and tank for 6 months before blending.

Vintage Notes

A cool, winter-like spring saw vine growth delayed in development. Rainfall in October was significant. A dry and warm summer, with sustained warmth during day and night through December, January and February, possibly influenced by another La Niña season, saw a rapid ripening period for all white varieties, with all vineyards harvested in little over a month. Fruit quality was excellent with surprising delicacy and elegance. A low yielding vintage, primarily due to spring conditions over the past two years. Warm and rapid veraison for reds in early February was ideal and saw the Cabernet’s desirable ripe flavours pronounce themselves quickly. Vine health remains fantastic, with fruit quality high and flavours concentrated.

    Halliday Wine Companion 2024 - Jane Faulkner

    A lot more going on here than many other SBS blends from the region this vintage, and that’s no BS either. Lots of citrus and distinct lime oil characters, some pastry (presumably from part of the wine being barrel fermented) with a lovely texture, all slippery, creamy with a little phenolic grip. A good drink without overcomplicating things. V22

    The Real Review - Stuart Knox

    Light straw-yellow colour. Pome fruit, smoke and bush honey aromatics. A fuller expression of this blend, with a weight of fruit and smoky savoury undertones. Good length and drive with acidity keeping it clean throughout and a phenolic fuzz drying the finish. Food would enhance it further. (v20)

    The Real Review - Huon Hooke

    Lemon-essence aroma, simple and pronounced. The wine is bright and pleasantly citrusy on palate, with intensity and length, straightforward and clean finishing. The aftertaste is firm, dry and lip-smacking. V22
