Right Reverend V, Castitas, Semillon-Sauvignon Blanc, Margaret River
£19.99

Tasting notes:

The Right Reverend V ‘Castitas’ (meaning purity) Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is a homage to the white Bordeaux style; bright in colour, this wine has all the hallmarks of the quintessential Margaret River white blend - grassy, herbal notes combined with lemon and citrus with texture and weight provided by the Semillon. A smoky touch of new French oak adds a distinct personality, while racy acidity cleanses and refreshes the palate. This food-orientated style shows best with seafood pasta dishes or grilled fish, herbs and lemon.

Sourced from mature semillon vineyards (73%) and sauvignon blanc vineyards (27%) in the sub-region of wilyabrup with 15% of the sauvignon blanc component fermented in brand new french oak barriques, three months on lees. the remaining free run juice is cold fermented in stainless steel.

Region: Margaret River, WA

Alcohol: 12.2% v/v

Background:

If ‘In Vino Veritas’ (in wine there’s truth), then surely this truth begins in the vineyard. The Right Reverend V by Vinaceous Wines are sourced from our most revered vineyards; vineyards that begin in Margaret River’s north, stretch south to Cape Leeuwin, and then continue south- west to the Great Southern region and to Mount Barker; these are the premium wine regions of Western Australia.

The Right Reverend V selects its chosen varietals from vineyards that cover over 670 hectares available across these two regions; cool climate Riesling from Mount Barker. Crisp Chardonnay from southern Margaret River. Dry, savoury Pinot Noir Rose from north Margaret River. And beautifully, brooding cabernets from Mount Barker.

Each wine is named after one of the seven virtues, designed to combat the seven deadly sins of mankind - temperance, integrity, patience and charity - all of which are also virtues in winemaking. Modern winemaking and unique stylistic interpretations with the enjoyment of fine food underlines our vision.
