West Cape Howe SSB
West Cape Howe Was Founded In 1997 And Soon Became One Of The Most Popular Wine Brands In Western Australia. Over Time It Has Acquired Some Of The Oldest Vineyard Resources In The State, Giving It Un-Equalled Access To The Best And Most Consistent Quality Fruit That The Cool Great Southern Wine Region Has To Offer.
Arguably our most popular wine, all the Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc fruit is sourced from cool climate vineyards in the South West of Western Australia. Close to a 50:50 blend, the Sauvignon Blanc provides the fresh herbaceousness while the Semillon provides the lemony flavours and the good palate weight. Harvesting at night, fermenting at cool temperatures and bottling early ensures we retain maximum fruit flavour and vibrancy in this wine.
What’s It Like/Tasting Notes
Colour – Bright and clear with a light, lemony green colour.
Aroma – Is beautifully aromatic with zesty, sweet lemon and baked citrus characters with some light tropical fruit aromas.
Palette – Our SSB is a fresh and light dry white. It has lovely, ‘sweet lemon’ fruit flavours rather than being overly grassy or herbaceous. Its good palate weight together with a gentle, clean acidity makes for excellent drinking. Delicious now with a wide range of foods, this is best enjoyed as a young wine.
