The first Semillon Sauvignon Blanc was produced by Mike Peterkin in Margaret River in 1979 when he was making wine for Kevin and Di Cullen. That wine was labelled Semillon Sauvignon Blanc and sold as such. He did create a new style which emphasized aroma, freshness and fruit character. That first Semillon Sauvignon Blanc produced in 1979 went on to win the trophy at the Perth Royal Show for the best full bodied dry white wine, and so is on the public record. It also clearly established the potential that a blend of these two varieties had in Margaret River. Fresh, herbaceous, crisp and tropical unwooded Margaret River style. The fruity richness from the Sauvignon Blanc blending with textured Semillon . Providing great harmony to the blend, which actually originated in Bordeaux. Intense flavour finishing with lemon and lime blossoms and sherbet acidity.
