Tasting Notes

A touch of smoke over soft peach and fresh pineapple - like the fruit has been slightly toasted over an outdoor grill - with a squeeze of lemon juice. The nose and palate open out into a glorious parade of fresh and zingy exotic elements: kaffir lime, kiwi, lime and a softer shade of pear. The finish carries through with refreshing, aromatic lemon and lime zest and a hint of pink himalayan salt. The overall impression is of a juicy and fresh drop of sunshine elixir! Tickle your taste buds with something a little different - Semillon rocks!


Press Note:

This is an exciting new dry white Bordeaux, although it comes from the area most known for its World-famous sweet wine - Sauternes. Several well-known Sauternes estates, including Rayne Vigneau, Clos Haut-Peyraguey and La Tour Blanche, surround the 10 acres of vineyards. Winemaker Cyril de Romance and his family have a long association with Bordeaux and they are determined to create “daring and unusual wines” but in the style of white Burgundy. This wine is 90% Semillon, which with time has a delightful honeyed flavour, plus 10% Sauvignon Blanc to add backbone to the wine. Less than 1000 cases are made of this gem, which will definitely gain in popularity once it is better known. Perfect by itself or with most varieties of fish. Bruce Palling, The Week
