Tasting Note:

A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Semillon picked between the 29th August and 11th September. Despite the additional Sauvignon in the blend, this varietal character doesn’t dominate. Notes of melon, lemon grass, waxed lemons and stones. There’s a lovely texture here, with enough density and mouth coating citrus fruit, yet without any sense of weight. Fragrant and ever so vibrant, one is left with a beautiful saline finish of limes and flowers. As ever, this puts many a big name in the shade.
