This is a dashing, lively, crisp blend, and is reminiscent of its namesake, Christobel.

"This everyday white has been around for decades and is worth a re-acquaintance. Fresh as you could imagine with a vibrant lemon blossom and mint fragrance, tempering the more tropical fruit salad aromatic characters of the sauvignon which tend to swirl around in the mid palate and finish. It's a no brainer, lively and refreshing to the core." 3½ stars -Tony Love, The Herald Sun, 15 April 2014
"Looking for a refreshing everyday drinking white that won't break the bank? This should do the job. A blend of semillon and sauvignon blanc from the Barossa that has gone through several label changes over the years, this has plenty of freshness and zingy acidity and weighs in at just 12 per cent alcohol. There are citrus and passionfruit notes on the palate and more weight than you would expect in this price bracket. Very nice." Winsor Dobbin, Sunday Examiner, 6 April 2014
Winery Tasting Notes
Bright straw green in colour.
Christobel’s shows classic Semillon aromas of honeydew melon, citrus blossom and cut grass complemented with notes of guava and green apple. Fine and refreshing.
The Semillon provides richness and depth with fruit flavours of lemongrass and lime while the Sauvignon Blanc offers layers of guava and a fine mineral finish.
A wonderful fresh wine for current drinking with fresh seafood, salads and Asian-style cuisine.
