We love this wine! Pale lemon with orange blossom, lime, gooseberry and passion fruit aromas. There is also a hint of struck match complexity arising from skin contact during fermentation. The Semillon component helps fill out the palate, adding fruit weight, richness and age-ability, while also acting to restrain the exuberance of the Sauvignon Blanc. The lees contact adds further creaminess and body, however there is still a crisp refreshing minerality on the finish.
