Winemaker's Notes

Pale straw with strong green tinges. The rich middle palate, which is produced by the excellence of the fruit and barrel fermenting in new oak, leads into a long and pleasantly assertive finish. Excellently structured and perfectly integrated.

The excellent structure imparted on this wine by the Semillon component, allied with the very high quality of the Sauvignon Blanc fruit and the subtle use of oak, will ensure that this wine will age very well in bottle.

"Pale straw with green and yellow tinges. Restrained complex and citrusy fragrance of honeydew melon and gooseberry, accentuated by spicy clove and nutmeg notes of the fine-grained oak. Tight, focused, bright and pure, with penetrating, crystalline gooseberry and passionfruit flavors playing along the entire length of the fine, minerally palate. Superbly crafted and balanced; a near perfect expressive of a definitive Australian breed of white wine."
-International Wine Cellar
