This entry-level Sémillon is young, fresh, and very tasty. Suitably chilled, it's crisp and clean, with notes of lime, passion fruit, and fresh vegetation, food-friendly and invigorating on the palate, coming across like a blend of Sauvignon Blanc and dry Riesling. But as it warms it gets plumper and juicier, the sharpness giving way to a range of fruit including apple, pear, pineapple, and apricot, with a touch of grapefruit bitterness at the end. It lacks depth and complexity, but that's common in young Sémillon, and there's enough of the characteristic acidity for at least some aging.
