The wine is made in a reductive style to preserve the aromatic fruit profile. Fermentation took place in a combination of stainless steel tanks and oak barrels. The individual components were kept separate and underwent regular battonage (lees stirring). Blending was done after 6 months’ maturation. 2nd-fill French 225L barrels for 6 months
Flinty, stone-fruit and fig-like aromas from the Sauvignon Blanc are complemented by beautiful tangerine characters from the Semillon. Gooseberry and melon characters contribute to a full, rounded creaminess on the palate. This wine has a persistent body with wonderful length and elegance.
An absolutely beautiful wine, perfect on its own, but also the ideal partner to most seafood dishes and pasta.
