A classic blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Sémillon, this is a wine of grace, elegance and age-worthy
Sporting a light golden hue in the glass.
The wine greets the drinker with heady aromas of lemon curd, grapefruit, and subtle wisps of smoke.
On the palate there is an immediate sense of weight and richness as the wine envelops the taster with layers of ripe grapefruit, lime zest, as well as more tropical flavours of passion-fruit, quince and even hints of pineapple. There is a lively sense of saline minerality, stringing these flavours together into a unified whole, right through to the long finish. There is only the most subtle sense of oak, but more telling is the sense of volume and richness coming from the sur-lie barrel aging.
This is a complex and engaging seafood winepar-excellence: sea-bass, tuna, crab, or oysters would be a knock-out. Roast chicken or herb-crusted pork would be excellent too. Enjoyable now, this is a wine which will develop an added sense of richness with age.
