Aroma: The dominance of Sauvignon Blanc reveals intense flavors of white flowers, citrus and white fruits.

Tasting Notes: While in the mouth the Semillon brings roundness, volume and richness with pleasant notes of citrus fruits. A fine liveliness leads to a great finale.

"Medium straw to pale gold. Aromas of white peach, lemon, honeydew, yellow watermelon, honeysuckle and creek stones. Dry and crisp with melon and ripe pear accented by bright lemon and lime zest. Hint of herbaceousness but driven by the fruit. Well balanced modern style". – tastings.com.

"Clean crisp flavors and feel the verticality even on the nose. Love the mouth watering aspect here, this is high acidity, but for me it is well matched by minerality and clean bracing citrus and honeydew. Lovely, with good structure". – Decanter Magazine
