This is a blend to top them all: 44% sauvignon blanc, 30% semillon, 16% chardonnay, 6% chenin blanc, 2% verdelho and 2% riesling. There's no question, the sauvignon blanc and semillon are the drivers, but experience in laboratory bench blend trials tells you 2% of this or that can have a totally disproportionate influence on the final outcome. The flavours linger long after the wine is swallowed, the balance is very good. It's not made to be cellared, but it's not going away any time soon.Drink to 2015.
