LC Pedestal Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2016 (Margaret River, WA)
Pedestal Semillon Sauvignon Blanc 2016, from Larry Cherubino, Western Australia shows savoury aromas of pea pods, minerality and citrus. The crunchy acidity is softened by layers of texture, which is due to partial oak fermentation. The palate is intense and focussed, yet soft and immediately drinkable.
