2018 Estate Blanc

Calluna’s Estate Blanc comes from our 2.5 acre block of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon planted on the northeast slope of the vineyard.

This is a wine of bright acidity, moderate alcohol and great depth of flavor. These varietals complement each other as the rounder and honey-like tones of the Semillon are a counterpoint to the citrus, mineral and brighter tones of the Sauvignon Blanc. The barrel fermentation and barrel aging further harmonize the wine, giving us a graceful wine which belongs at the table and will potentially age for many years.

“The 2018 Calluna Estate Blanc is a two-thirds, one-third blend of sauvignon blanc and sémillon and the wine is excellent. The bouquet wafts from the glass in a very stylish blend of gooseberry, green apple, a touch of beeswax, salty soil tones and a whisper of vanillin oak. On the palate the wine is crisp, full-bodied, focused and vibrant, with a good core, bright acids and lovely focus and grip on the long and complex finish. This is very fine juice.”
