70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Semillon

"Composed of 70% Sauvignon Blanc and 30% Sémillon, the Crabitey 2019 Blanc has compelling scents of white peaches, grapefruit and passion fruit with hints of pineapple tart and coriander seed. The medium-bodied palate has a seriously racy line of freshness cutting through the intense citrus and tropical fruit layers, finishing chalky." (WA)

"The 2019 Crabitey Blanc is super expressive from the first taste. Crushed rocks, mint and lemon peel are all finely cut in this steely, focused white loaded with personality. Bright, saline notes underpin the persistent, vibrant finish. This is such a pretty wine." (VM)

"A fresh, tangy white with sliced lime and green-apple character. It’s medium-to full-bodied. Fruity finish. Creamy texture." (JS)

"An easygoing and fresh wine, this brings out a crisp texture of citrus as well as richer white stone fruits. The wine's bright fruitiness and lively acidity are delicious. Drink now. -Roger Voss" (WE)

Winery Notes:
Chateau Crabitey Graves Blanc displays a fine, light yellow color and a nice brilliance. Its nose is fine and complex-even lemony with its pomelo scent - with some smoky notes. In the mouth, the wine is fully developed and complex, with a nice volume as well as a light acidity for the freshness. The finish is long and distinguishes itself by nice and light woody and citrus fruit aromas.
