Winemaker's Notes

This wine is bright, pale yellow with green tints and aromas of citrus with an herbaceous green pea edge. Sauvignon Blanc from the cooler areas provides the powerful fruit backbone with Semillon giving structure of richness to the palate. Some barrel ferment character adds subtle complexity and further dimension to the palate. A fine natural acid structure provides length and liveliness to the finish.

Blend: 55% Sauvignon Blanc; 45% Semillon

Learn About Bordeaux White Blends

Bordeaux White Blend
There's white wine in Bordeaux, too! Typically made from Semillon, Sauvignon Blanc, and bits of Muscadelle, white Bordeaux can be a fully dry table wine or, as in Sauternes, a deliciously sweet dessert wine. In other areas of the world, a Bordeaux blend consists primarily of Sauvignon Blanc and Semillon, either of which may be the predominant variety. Bordeaux blends can vary in style, but most have good acidity and often a mineral overtone.
