Tasting Notes
A blend of primarily Sauvignon Blanc with small components of Semillon and Chardonnay. There is the judicous use of French oak and extended time on yeast lees. The nose presents a toasty and savoury, almost gunflint character with underlying citrus and barley sugar appeal. A dry and medium to full bodied style with well integrated acid and lemongrass, preserved lemon and grapefruit flavours. The wine is extraordinarily balanced and poised with a very long finish.
