A lifted and zesty aroma combination of leaf, gooseberry and citrus of Sauvignon Blanc, combining with a nice addition of lemon sherbet and fig from the Semillon. There are also some nice bread dough-like notes underneath, a product of the barrel fermentation. Here the theme of freshness continues, with a zesty leaf and citrus fruit depth, lifted by crisp acidity. Mouthfeel is medium bodied and the texture is nicely rounded, with a touch of bread dough. The finish is clean, with no lingering tannin or bitterness.

James Halliday

An exercise in complexity from start to finish, with a rainbow of flavours anchored by barrel ferment notes. Fermentation was initiated in stainless steel, then transferred to used barriques to build texture, not flavour. After a brief stay in oak the wine was sterile filtered and bottled.

James Suckling

Very complex, fresh and convincingly vibrant blend with a lime and lemon-cream core of fruit on the palate, as well as green-mango notes. Great depth and elegance. Drink or hold.

Super classy and intricately crafted, this is a blend that revels in the crystalline purity, tension and focus of bright lemon fruit and lemon grass, gracefully polished with the spice, texture and elongating effect of old barrel fermentation. Such length and tension promise decades of potential. If you love white Bordeaux, you’ll adore this – and at a bargain price
