Low, but well balanced crops were harvested at optimal ripeness. This traditional French blend of sauvignon blanc and semillon was fermented by indigenous yeasts and then aged sur lie, the semillon component in old French oak barriques.
This traditional French blend has aromas and flavours of citrus fruit, passion-fruit and greengages, with a hint of dried herbs. The low crop levels have particularly emphasised the semillon component in the wine, filling out the palate and giving good concentration as well as structure. It has a crisp, dry finish and a lingering after-taste on the palate. While ready to drink on release it should develop additional layers of complexity with careful cellaring over several years.
