The Margaret River, home to the Clairault winery, is recognised as having a similar climate to the Bordeaux region in France, home to the Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grape varieties. It makes sense then, that this region produces some very drinkable Semillon Sauvignon Blanc blends indeed. The colour of straw, this is food friendly as well as refreshingly crisp and easy drinking. It is dry, but has a fuller body and intense citrus, peachy stonefruit with zingy passionfruit and some herbaceous characters. Try it with a warm chicken and grilled fig salad. Delicious!!!
