“A very concentrated full-tilt take on the Style. A wealth of ripe lemon, cool herbs, and bright tropical fruit accents as well as papaya on the palate. Flesh and acidity are well matched”. 

The colour is pale gold with aromas of citrus fruit, greengage, gooseberry, and passionfruit. There is also a hint of struck match and freshly crushed thyme. The Semillon component helps fill out the palate, adding fruit weight, richness, and age-ability, while also acting to restrain the exuberant herbaceousness of the sauvignon blanc. The lees contact adds further creaminess and body, however, there is still a crisp refreshing minerality on the finish. 

 

Pairs well with seafood, Asian chicken salad, rosemary-stuffed pork tenderloin, turkey.
