Appearance: Pale straw, brilliantly bright with a slight lemon tinge.
Nose: Aromatics reveal fresh nettle and ripe tropical fruits. Lightly toasted oak adds an extra dimension and depth.
Palate: A focused wine that displays citrus, grassy and subtle lime zest flavours. Deftly selected and handled oak provides vigour and complexity. Refreshing tangy acidity brings life to the finish.
Cellaring: This wine is ready for immediate drinking however has the structure to evolve slowly over the next 7 years.
"The best young Semillon Sauvignon Blanc I’ve tasted in a year or more. It’s young of course, crisp and crunchy with searing intensity and real depth of flavour. Lemons, grass and nettles sing in harmony here, while a gentle touch of oak adds polish and texture. A seamless wine of great line and length, with perfect pitch. Will fill out in the next year or two, and turn into a soft, round creature over several more years. 96 points, BUY." - Kim Brebach, bestwinesunder20.com.au, Sept 2019
