Chenin Blanc provides a foundation of stone fruit, Semillon adds tropical fruit and Sauvignon Blanc offer citrus, while all three contribute a fresh dose of acidity.
Part of the Chenin Blanc and the Semillon were fermented in new French Oak barrels, lending body and complexity.
Constantly evolving, this wine shows a fine palate of pears, peaches and apricots with a striking line of citrus. While the texture shows body, the vibrant acidity gives the wine a feeling of weightlessness. All of the components have settled, revealing an integrated whole with secondary complexity and a long, mouthwatering finish.
16 years after bottling, this wine has finally entered its ideal drinking window. It has settled beautifully and is showing lovely concentration, freshness and intriguing secondary characteristics.
