Winery Tasting Notes

Colour

Gleaming, very pale yellow.

Aroma

Lifted fragrant vanilla spice over apple and pear fruits, generous and appealing.

Palate

Semillon’s lemon zest and herbal characters are held aloft by a deft touch of French oak barrel fermentation, delivering additional texture and spice notes, layered upon sprightly acidity. Flavoursome and stylish, rich and rounded yet not at all heavy. Beautifully balanced, clean and long.

Food Matching

Cries out for fuller flavoured seafood or roast poultry dishes.

Cellaring

Will cellar comfortably for six to eight years but drink best in over the coming four.
