Xanadu Sauvignon Blanc Semillon Next of Kin 2012

I thought this to be a pretty fresh and good example of a sauvignon blanc and semillon blend.  It has aromatics of cut grass, passionfruit, red and green apples, with some guava in there too. T he palate is dry with medium acid, and the apple flavours continue with a short to medium length finish.  Overall, this is a balanced expression of sauvignon blanc-semillon that I found to be quite fresh and gluggable and is ready to drink now.  Acceptable to Good
