A blend of almost equal parts of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon.
Designed to age! We refer to this as a "red-wine drinkers white". Very versatile with foods of many styles. Intriguing aromas of honeyed herb tea with spice, minerals, mangoes and melon accented by a trace of salinity, notes of quince, clove and white fig.
Both the Semillon and the Sauvignon Blanc are barrel fermented separately in specially designed French Oak cooperage made specifically for these varie. These lots were aged 14 months on the lees and stirred weekly. The final blend was put together just a couple of weeks before bottling. There was NO secondary malolactic fermentation involved.
