Tasting Notes

The nose is reminiscent of creamy butterscotch, hazelnuts and biscuit. The Semillon gives a wonderful creaminess and texture, which is balanced by the freshness and crisp acidity of the Sauvignon Blanc. The delicate wooding makes it an excellent food wine and pairs beautifully with rich seafood.
