The colour is light and glistening. The wine displays powerful herbaceous aromatics with gooseberry and asparagus, and secondary floral and passionfruit aromas. The palate shows a textural, approachable mouth feel with primary flavours of citrus and tart gooseberry with tropical fruit and subtle minerality. Fruit flavours linger on the palate and the wine has a refreshing, clean finish.


The 2023 growing season in the Great Southern delivered ideal conditions for cool climate semillon and sauvignon blanc. There was good rainfall over winter while spring was reasonably dry and summer held slightly cooler temperatures, allowing for flavours to develop while retaining natural acidity. The fruit, from selected semillon and sauvignon blanc vineyards in the region, was picked to produce a fresh and aromatic blend that showcases the best varietal characteristics of this classic Western Australian blend.

The semillon was picked before dawn on 28 March 2023 and the sauvignon blanc was picked on 22 March 2023. Both varieties were gently de-stemmed and crushed. A light pressing followed, with the free run juice separated and fermented in stainless steel tanks. The parcels of semillon and sauvignon blanc were kept separate throughout. The fermentation was carried out at 15°C for 15 days. On 18 April 2023 the wines were racked off their lees and blending trials were carried out to produce what we considered to be the best possible semillon and sauvignon blanc blend. With the goal of producing a dry, fresh styled wine with good structure and a nice length of flavour, the final blend was 62% semillon and 38% sauvignon blanc.

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.

This 2020 offering is every bit as good as the 2019 which I still rave about. Enjoyed this with California rolls, sushi and sushimi salmon and was in my humble view an excellent pairing.

A colour of morning sunlight, this SSB has a well balanced front palette, with Asian fruits complimenting the finish with a frizzle tang at the end. Great combination for this wine style.

a flinty straw colour with an alluring tropical nose, zesty citrus lemon nuances with a delicious mouth filling long finish perfect with charred lamb cutlets and wilted rocket, a summer joy in the bottle

Light bodied, stunning pale yellow colour, easy drinking, perfect for a summer or warn autumn night. Paired well with pan seared barramundi, beautifully bringing out out the most gorgeous tropical flavours: passion fruit, lemon, grapefruit. Not too sweet but also not too dry! Fresh and crisp to taste. Gorgeous slight mineral, long finish. So versatile, would also pair well with trout and crème fraise Blini’s… Can’t wait to try that pairing!

What a fantastic SSB, and incredible value too! Light in body and easy drinking, this is a great sipper as well as a food wine. The acidity is refreshing, and while it's clean, pure and crisp, it has a delightful texture on the palate. Flavours include gooseberry, passonfruit, lemon juice, green apple and a gorgeous herbaceousness. I had it with pork, pak choi and hoisin sauce and it was glorious!

The 2023 SSB by Singlefile is a lovely light, crisp and refreshing white wine to be enjoyed. It was shared amongst family at a xmas bbq and it went down a treat. A perfect summer semillon sav blanc!

The 23 SSB had Green capsicum on the nose, great fruit length with Sweet and spicy capsicum on the palate, decanted the second half of the bottle and the bouquet changed from the capsicum to tropical fruit with a little air and warmth. considering the mix was 62%semillon and 38 % Savvy, you could definitely taste and smell the savvy influence. Great example of a WA SSB
