56% Sauvignon Blanc 44% Semillon
Estate grown, harvested and processed separately, tank and barrel ferment, followed by 6 months storage on yeast lees for palate texture. Lifted Sauvignon Blanc aromatics, with a subtle citrus note from the Semillon. The Semillon adds palate length and weight.
A fresh blend that exhibits crushed lemongrass, fresh citrus and snow pea aromas with an underlying oak influence.
Intense citrus flavours abound on the palate, with a deftly intertwined lacing of herbaceous crunch adding complexity. A zesty and refreshing acid backbone that is beautifully balanced with the seasoned French oak providing both structure and length.
