Description

Our flagship white wine is a classic Bordeaux blend of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon. It is a wine of grace, elegance and age-worthy structure.

The palate shows flavours of ripe grapefruit, lime zest, as well as more tropical flavours of passionfruit, quince, and pineapple. There is a lively sense of saline minerality stringing these flavours together into a unified whole, 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. Complex and engaging, this is a seafood wine par-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.
