Grapes are picked at modest levels of sugar baume to capture fine, high note aromas, crisp primary fruit flavours and good acid structure. Specialised yeasts are employed to increase the aromatic lift. A portion is fermented and matured fourteen weeks in new barriques, adding an amazing complexity to the core of fruit, infusing a delicate influence of very fine grain tannins and the unique spicy vanillin characters of French oak. The aromatic and textural complexity of a Semillon Sauvignon style has been enhanced by retaining extra solids in some of the parcels. A small contribution from Sauvignon Blanc fermented entirely on skins has added a unique savouryness.
Bright straw, lime green. Gooseberry and lime notes, sourdough, romano cheese and coriander to the bouquet. The savoury element is mirrored on the palate as a rich and textural composite of citrus fruits, as herbs build and evolve in the mouth. A slatey, mouthwatering acidity permeates the generous fruit flavours and accentuates a long cleansing finish. Subtle sandalwood and clove hint at the contribution from fine French oak.
