This is a unique expression of a traditional white Bordeaux blend using approximately 70% Sauvignon Blanc & 30% Semillon. Both varieties were picked in stages, timing each harvest to optimise the grapes’ range of natural flavours. These varieties were fermented separately, most of the Sauvignon in stainless steel to retain the pure fruit character (with approx. one third on skins) and all the Semillon in oak puncheons to add texture. A small percentage of the Sauvignon Blanc was also matured in new French barrels to give extra length and complexity. Both varieties were aged on their natural deposits of yeast lees (sur lie) for approximately 10 mths, prior to blending. Once bottled, the wine was left to age for another year before release, allowing it to integrate further.


14.0% ABV

On release the colour is pale lemon. The nose is powerfully expressive, charred
citrus, crushed thyme, and baked apple melded with nettle, blossom, and a whiff of
gun smoke. In the mouth it is richly textured, with refreshing acidity and a phenolic
drive that adds structure, weight, and complexity. While the Semillon component
fills out the palate and gives richness, the wine is vibrant and energised, it’s crisp
minerality leading the way to a persistent finish.
