The Triolet, first produced at this vineyard in 1987, was inspired by the whites of Graves, Bordeaux. The vineyard is planted to 65% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Semillon and 10% Muscadelle. The 2015 Triolet opens with some reductive notes which quickly dissipate within the first couple of swirls to reveal an incredibly complex bouquet. Citrus, lime and hints of passionfruit are initially detected. With time in the glass, the floral components of this wine take charge which we generally attribute to the Muscadelle component.

65% sauvignon blanc, 21% semillon, 14% muscadelle, fermented separately in used oak, matured for 11 months with lees stirring. This is an uncommonly rich Triolet at this early stage, but that is all to the good, for it will mature majestically as all the vintages that preceded it have done. 96 points James Halliday
