SNAKE + HERRING, PERFECT DAY, SAUVIGNON BLANC-SEMILLON
MARGARET RIVER, AUSTRALIA 2018
Over the last year, the wines of Snake & Herring have certainly struck a chord with our customers, riding the line between sumptuousness and elegance at a price point you can't beat. From a 5-star producer duo operating out of Margaret River, the name goes back to the nicknames of its two owners. And although they’re a lot of fun, their wines are deadly serious. Without regional restraint of owning their own vineyards, they are fanatical about sourcing excellent fruit for their wines, even going as far as selecting only a few rows from a certain vineyard. Producing three tiers of expressions, it is their Safari range that is designed to explain the spirit and soul of the winery: the search for remarkable grapes from Western Australia showcasing the quality of regional styles. Today we couldn’t be more ecstatic to offer one of their treasured whites from this range, their newly released 2018 Perfect Day.
Scoring 95-Points each year since its first bottling in 2011 from one of Australia’s premier wine experts, James Halliday, Snake & Herring’s Perfect Day is a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon - one of those beautifully balanced whites for the summer that can be enjoyed all year round. Using fruit from two single vineyards in the Margaret River sub-region of Karridale, the fresh and fragrant character of the wine is very reflective of its origins. Home to some of the best Sauvignon Blanc in Margaret River, Karridale produces grapes naturally higher in acidity with an aromatic citrus fruit profile. Blended with Semillon, which provides notes of zesty lemon along with racy minerality, the wine is kept on the lees for 6 months, further enhancing texture and complexity. With nearly half of the blend barrel fermented, the wine achieves incredible elegance and richness while preserving plenty of zip.
As their most recent release, this delicious cuvee has not yet been scored – so we purchased all we could of this mouth-watering blend to offer to our customers for an incredible 4th of July deal! For up to 30% off when you buy 12 or more, bringing each bottle down to $12.97, this is one you’ll want to stock up on. As our previous offers of Snake & Herring proved, today's wine will sell out quickly. This is one delicious Margaret River gem you won’t want to hesitate on!
