“Excellent.” - 93 points, The Wine Advocate


Tasting Notes

Ooh la la! This stops you in your tracks, enveloping you with a treasure chest of aromas… grapefruit, passion fruit, nectarine, gun smoke and masterfully underpinned with a dash of oak adding vanilla spice and cream to the mix. There’s so much energy coiled up in its intensely pure yet mouthfilling core and the flavours are all pulled together with vibrant, mouthwatering, grapefruit freshness. This is what white Bordeaux strives towards but sadly often fails to deliver. An awesome wine!


Press Note:

The Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Director’s Reserve White is a 71% Semillon and 29% Sauvignon Blanc blend that is barrel-fermented and aged in oak for 9 months. The nose just seems a little muffled, the two grape varieties unable to decide who is in charge. The palate is nicely balanced with the Semillon more expressive at the moment, offering lovely notes of red apple, rosewater, apricot and quince. The acidity is very well-judged and there is a convincing air of confidence on the finish. Excellent. Drink now-2020." 93 points Platter Guide: "70/30 Sauvignon/Semillon blend with lemon cream aromas from the latter, blackcurrant and tropical notes from the former. Oak integrated and supportive. Precise and elegant, yet with full flavour and a kind of luxurious languidness." 5 Stars
