This wine is a blend of 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon and 5% Chardonnay.
The Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay components have been fermented in 100% new oak and with natural yeasts. The natural yeasts in both the Sauvignon Blanc and the Chardonnay give to the wine a texture, creaminess and length which we find would be attractive and complimentary to the wine style.
The Semillon has been tank fermented to keep freshness of flavour and vitality. On the nose you will find pineapple, pear and vanillin oak. The palate is elegant, stylish and complex. The fresh tropical fruits continue through to the palate, which has a long and delightfully crisp finish.
This wine will cellar well for five to ten years.
