There's no mistaking the grape varieties at play here. The first sniff gives a grassy, floral nose with hints of jasmine. There's that signature palate of lime and lemon, with good length and fruit weight, thanks to the 37-year-old vines producing fine Semillon.

Whilst we can't promise you Western Australia's almost perfect weather, we can offer you one of the benchmark wines of the region. Versatility's the name here, making for the perfect end-of-the-day glass or lifting lighter meals with its happy combination of the classic combo, Sauvignon and Semillon.

If you've never discovered Western Australian Sauvignon-Semillon blends, you're in for a pleasant surprise. The 'classic dry white' is one of the region's strongpoints, working well on its own, with salads and Asian-inspired dishes, soft creamy cheeses, and seafood

The Producer

Jackie Barton and Adrian Jones came across what's now Barton Jones Wines in 1999 on the outskirts of Donnybrook in Western Australia's Geographe wine region. They had acquired one of the oldest commercial plantings in the entire region, and these established vines soon demonstrated their superior quality.

Jackie's originally from the UK, with a background in IT and management, whereas Adrian's a former international rower and consultant engineer. Together they've reinvigorated Barton Jones Wines, turning them into a key player in this small Australian wine region.

The Winemaker

The combination of Semillon with Sauvignon Blanc, in varying proportions, has become synonymous with Western Australia. Taking their inspiration from the white wines of Bordeaux, the Aussie 'classic dry white' excels here like nowhere else on the continent.

Here it's 55% Sauvignon Blanc to 45% Semillon. There are few tricks to be had in the winery. It's all about the quality of the grapes, and Barton Jones' old vines are producing top-notch bunches from dry-grown vines. They employ a consultant winemaker to ensure these grapes are given the best possible treatment on their journey to becoming great wines.

The Region

Thanks to south-west sea breezes coming off the Indian Ocean the warmth of the region enjoys some respite from the heat. Due south from Perth, almost on the coast, Geographe has seen a blossoming of boutique wineries over recent decades.

Donnybrook is also known as the apple capital of the south-west, and the food is as important to the local culture as the wines.

As well as Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, red wine grape varieties Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot are also key players in the wines of Geographe.

Crab Cakes

The delicate crab meat calls for a smooth, fruity, floral white or rosé which doesn't overpower the meat - try Southern French rosés with good weight of fruit or a New World Sauvignon Semillon blend for starters.

Pea And Goats Cheese Risotto

Risottos pair well with both reds and whites so consider the other ingredients when choosing a wine match. The sweet peas and salty goats cheese call for a vibrant white with lots of fruit flavour - try northern Italian or southern hemisphere whites. Try our Semillon Sauvignon from Geographe, Western Australia. It will match very well.

Fusion Prawn And Vegetable Curry

The fragrance and flavours of coconut, chilli and ginger hold their own and can only be complemented by a fruity, aromatic white. Asian dishes are a classic pair for New World Sauvignon and Semillon blends, try our Barton Jones, it's got the body and aromatics to match this dish well.
