The wine shows flavours of blackcurrant, which is typical of a white Bordeaux blend as well as passion fruit, litchi and citrus. There’s a hint of white florals such as winter lilies, with an edge of minerality calling up wet slate. The Sauvignon Blanc component brings the aromatics, and in turn the Semillon offers structure and body. Subtle French oak flavours complement the blend. The wine is matured in 100% used French oak. The barrels used were 400L Semillon/225L Sauvignon. Read the full tasting notes here.
