Very flamboyant Sauvignon Blanc notes on the nose and a distant, waxy Semillon touch; the palate has leafy gooseberry fruit, light and fresh with sprightly acidity, spiced and direct, really well made with a delicious, refreshing finish.
"Sem-sav, the white blend of Bordeaux and also of Margaret River is not so much under-rated as under-appreciated. I love the calm – the hint of dried grass, lemongrass and faint beeswax – that semillon brings to sauvignon’s more piercing citrus flavours. This is mostly fermented in stainless steel with just a bit going into oak, to add a subtle layer of texture." Victoria Moore, The Telegraph, December 2019
"How does this small wine region in the far south-west corner of Australia do it? It manages to make superb Chardonnay, sumptuous Cabernet and this local speciality, a combination of the two grapes of white bordeaux. If you came across this labelled Pessac-Léognan you’d be thrilled. There’s just a hint of oak and the wine manages to be both opulent and refreshing. A great food wine. Maybe smoked salmon?"
