65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon that spent 9 months in neutral French oak. Nice, elegant nose of floral, yellow citrus, grapefruit, and herbs with subtle vanilla notes. The medium-bodied palate is rounded and textured with peach notes joining the aroma replays. Acids are bright and clean. Some spice and tart notes on the mid-palate. Pleasing stone fruit flavours linger on the long finish. Tasted Jan/2019.
