Generous tropical and stone fruit aromas: pineapple, mango, peach, and green pear, braced with racier notes of grapefruit, orange-citrus and kiwi. Floral notes of apple blossom mingle with subtle grassy tones. Steely and racy up front, yielding to a surprisingly supple mid-palate and polished finish. Shows honeycrisp apple, cantaloupe, peach, and lemon-zest flavors, ending subtly and lingering on mineral-toned finish.
Blend: 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon
"Smelling of ripe melons and a suggestion of fig and drifting more towards honeyed richness than to the green side of the variety, this wine combines the pert fruit of Sauvignon Blanc with the rounder potential offered by Semillon and hits on all cylinders in the bargain. Its palatal fullness is balanced by underlying fruit energy, and its youthful acidity is part and parcel of its long finish, and, in combination, they will help the wine age for a few years"
