Fantastic aromas of papaya, lemons, and pears with hints of cream. Full body, very layered and intense. Superb flavors and intensity. Vibrant acidity and freshness. Lasts so long on the palate. One of the wines of the vintage. A blend of 54% semillon, 36% sauvignon blanc, 8% sauvignon gris and 2% muscadelle. Drink or hold.

This is on the showy side, with toasted macadamia nut, butter and creamed white peach aromas and flavors leading the way, followed by warm shortbread, mirabelle plum and lemon curd notes that stretch through the lengthy finish. Almost languid, but a fine thread of verbena maintains the tension while allowing the hedonistic side to strut its stuff. Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc, Sauvignon Gris and Muscadelle. Drink now through 2020. 1,583 cases made.
