Product details

This is a unique expression of a traditional white Bordeaux blend using approximately 70% Sauvignon Blanc & 30% Semillon. The Sauvignon was picked in stages during April, timing each harvest to optimise the grapes? range of natural flavours. The Semillon was harvested in May. These varieties were fermented separately, the majority of the Sauvignon in stainless steel to retain the pure fruit character, and all of the Semillon in oak to add texture. A small percentage of the Sauvignon Blanc was also matured in new French barrels to give extra length and complexity. Both varieties were aged on their natural deposits of yeast lees (sue lie) for approximately 10 months, prior to blending. Once bottled, the wine was left to age for another year before release, allowing it to integrate further.

On release the colour is pale lemon. Tropical aromas commence the fanfare, a salvo of guava, pineapple and melon leading the way. Layered beneath are nuances of grapefruit, honeysuckle, crushed herbs, and a wisp of struck match. The palate is richly textured, backed by crisp acidity and a simmering phenolic drive that delivers outstanding weight and structure. A prolonged and sophisticated finish completes the union, adding further complexity and length.
