sauvignon blanc semillon, hay shed hill 2017

sauvignon blanc semillon with scallops

Very gentle, very gentle, it’s like it’s disguising itself in the bushes pretending not to be a wine. And there is just the slightest hint of an aftertaste, just like if a dog’s been in a house, and you go inside and walk in the house you think “I just have a feeling someone has been in the house.” It’s almost like kneading dough, as you move it around your mouth it’s extracting the flavour. Very smooth. Almost like oil in some respect.

You can find this wine at rustico, hay shed, margaret river.

pinc rose, pitchfork 2017

fancy meal with wine

It’s kind of like a soft pink rose in a rose garden, with the soft pillow feeling a rose petal has. And just a tiny prick, or hint of a thorn. Like when you run your finger over it gently, it doesn’t stab you, but you feel it and know it’s there.

Allowing it to sit on the tongue reminds me of ginger. Like that time, I had a ginger smoothie and put half a ginger in it. It’s not that extreme, but if you let it sit it builds and builds taste on the tongue. Whereas, if you just drink it, it has a rough finish to it, like lots of tiny tiny thorns, if we are talking rose bushes, but, there is a sweetness to it, but the sweetness and the roughness at the end of it are at odds to each other.
