This Sauvignon Blanc has echoes of white Bordeaux, with its 5% Semillon adding a streak of complexity and additional body to the blend. Free-run and gently pressed juice is used to minimise the presence of bitter tannins, and 2-3 months’ lees ageing adds to the texture. Aromas of green peppers, asparagus and gooseberry fill the nose, while the palate displays a riper character, with underlying pineapple and passionfruit notes providing a layered feel. Equally adept as a partner for shellfish or lobster as it is for roasted sea bass.
