Duncan Says: Imagine all the lovely qualities of Sauternes, but in a dry wine.
Tasting Notes: A complex and aromatic nose of elderberry, passion fruit, jasmine and ripe peach enhanced by a note of ginger leading to a rich and toasty flavour, long and luxurious.
Grape: Sauvignon Blanc 90%, Sauvignon Gris 10%
Best Enjoyed: Enjoy with a rich seafood risotto or a fish pie.
Good to Know: The wine spent six months on the lees in oak barrels, of which 30% were new oak. Daily ‘bâtonnage’ or lees stirring took place, imbuing the wine with texture and complexity
