White WineWine Tasting Note: The Society’s Australian Semillon-Sauvignon-Blanc, 2006, Western Australia.
Wine Society Own Label £6.50
I dunno; this was nice enough – perfectly drinkable form one of the top producers in WA it just seemed o lack a little something. Balance, simple rounded flavours, crisp acidity but lacking in a little something. Unoaked and gentle, a pleasant enough drink at a reasonably good price.

This classic blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc has become a speciality of Western Australia, the broad texture of Semillon is perfectly balanced by the zesty tropical fruit of Sauvignon Blanc. Unoaked and full of flavour, this a lovely wine to enjoy with friends.”

Produced and bottled by Plantagenet Wines. 12% Alcohol.

Scribblings Rating – 84/100 [3 out of 5]
White WineWine Tasting Note: The Society’s New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, 2007, New Zealand.
Wine Society Own Label £8.50
This is much more like it – zesty, punchy aromas following through on the palate. Super grassy, herb and gooseberry exuberance that you expect from a decent Marlborough Sauvignon. It compares well with similar wines and hits the right price point too.

Unoaked this wine is aromatic, zesty full of flavour and highly refreshing. A classic partner for fish and chips, Thai-style dishes and goats cheese salads or equally good on its own.”

Produced and bottled by Villa Maria Estate, New Zealand. Alcohol 12%

Scribblings Rating – 90/100 [3.75 out of 5]
