2020 delivered strong growing conditions, with winter and spring being reasonably dry and summer holding slightly cooler temperatures which allowed for flavours to develop while retaining natural acidity.

From selected Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon vineyards in the Great Southern region of Western Australia. Picked to produce a fresh, dry, aromatic blend that showcases the varietal characteristics of this classic blend.

Both the Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc were picked before dawn on 20th February 2020. Both varieties were gently de-stemmed and crushed immediately. Light pressing followed with the free run juice separated and fermentation taking place in tank. The parcels of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc were kept separate throughout. The fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks at 14 degrees for 21 days. At completion, the wines were racked off their lees. Thereafter blending trials were carried out to produce what we considered to be the best possible Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc blend.

Our goal is to produce a dry, fresh and aromatic styled wine with structure and length of flavour. The final blend was 58% Semillon and 42% Sauvignon Blanc.


The colour is light, bright and glistening. The wine displays aromatics of gooseberries and tropical fruit. The palate shows a textural mouth feel which lingers to a refreshing dry finish and a subtle flinty minerality.

One of the best SSB’s I’ve EVER had. Can’t get enough of it. It’s dry and fresh but not too dry :) Simply a delight to drink with a nice cheese platter which is what I plan on doing with it this weekend. Thanks again Singlefile for a great SSB and the reason I stay in the wine club

Still my favourite ever. One of the reasons we joined Singlefiles wine club. This SSB we’ve had with varying foods or on its own. Tonight we had it with pasta and garlic bread - yummo!!! Winner 🌟

This Semillon Sauvignon Blanc is very young of course, crisp and light with intensity and a real depth of flavour. This wine is very drinkable now but I believe will be an outstanding wine within a year and will continue to evolve over several more years.

A pale straw coloured wine with a fruity nose - kiwi-friuit, peaches? The palate is long and fruit driven but with a balancing acidity which makes it a great match with non-oily seafood. A very enjoyable, well balanced wine even in its early development.

A lovely pale lemon-yellow coloured drop. A very well balanced dry and light taste with wonderful fruity aromas. An all rounder that will appeal to most wine drinkers in my experience.

Pale in colour with aromas of cut grass. Sweetness at the front with a dry crisp finish. Enjoy by itself or with some fresh WA seafood! A fantastic wine!

Definitely Semillon dominant on the nose, with dried grass/hay characters and subtle fruit notes, sauvignon taking a backseat here. Very restrained fruit on the palate, with crisp acidity and a slight sprtiz. Give it a 3 to 5 years for the Semillon to add some texture and complexity, and this could be a winner. Great price point to start if you're wondering whether or not you might like to start cellaring wines.

A textbook SSB blend from Singlefile delivering a fresh and well balanced wine. Hints of fresh fruit and grassy undertones make this ideal on a warm sunny day.

A real gem which I recently discovered. It’s up there with Cloudy Bay and Shaw + Smith for me could not recommend it more highly.
