A staggeringly rich blend of 81% Semillon and the rest Sauvignon Blanc, this full-throttle, impressively endowed wine has good acidity, with hints of candle wax, mandarin orange marmalade, caramelized melons and lemon oil. It is a stunner and should last 30-40 more years.

96 points, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (Issue # 205 - Feb 2013)

This white is really intense with mangos, pineapple, and lemon character. It's full and very lively with wonderful depth of fruit and length. Fresh and bright with tangy acidity and a brilliance at the end. Hard not to drink it now. Better after 2016.

Rich in character, suffused with the freshest acidity, structure and spice. It is so concentrated, likely to age for many years

94-96 points, Wine Enthusiast (Jun 2011)

Sports some serious power, with dried melon and pineapple notes framing a core of Jonagold apple, lemon curd, green plum and heather. Extra tangerine and bitter almond notes flash through the finish, which is nicely toasty and needs some time to stretch out. Displays remarkable density, with a pleasant austerity now that should mellow steadily with age. Best from 2016 through 2025. 450 cases made.
