Clare Valley Semillon and Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc are perfect blending partners. Clare Valley's warm summers provide full bodied Semillon fruit with citrus character and palate weight. The cooler Adelaide Hills Sauvignon Blanc delivers a lovely touch of fresh green herbs with riper tropical fruits. Together, the two varieties from the two regions deliver a seamless palate with fresh fruit flavours.

Winery Tasting Notes
Semillon from Clare Valley 70%, Sauvignon Blanc from Adelaide Hills 30%.
White straw in colour with lime edges.
Aromas of freshly cut hay precedes attractive violet floral notes and a faint suggestion of lemon and lychee.
The palate brims with green melon and predominantly tropical fruit flavours, along with lingering heady floral tones. This is an alluring, delicate wine that is drinking perfectly now.
Annie Wayman was a legend in the Clare Valley. She could always be relied upon to bring along sandwiches and a warm drink to harvesters and pruners at the turn of the century. One evening Annie's horse and cart became bogged in a lane adjacent to one of the valley's best vineyards. Thus, Annie's Lane was named.
