This wine comprises of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon. Most of the Sauvignon Blanc fruit had 8 hours skin contact prior to pressing. The Semillon component is crushed and pressed immediately after picking. This wine was 100% barrel fermented with predominantly larger barrels used. All went through natural yeast fermentation. The extended lees contact helps fill out the middle palate and gives this wine the extra dimension it is known for.
The 2018 Sauvignon Blanc/ Semillon shows a bouquet of mixed citrus with a touch of golden kiwifruit and subtle herbal characters. The palate is tight with minerality and a hint of grapefruit. These characters combine to produce a multi layered wine with excellent length and finesse.
