Variable conditions over flowering resulted in a moderate fruit set. The subsequent warm summer then allowed the grapes to ripen beautifully. Late season conditions were favourable for the development of noble botrytis, essential for the production of this wine style.
On release it is bright gold in colour, the bouquet an enchanting medley of ripe apricot, ginger and lemon curd, with a hint of honeysuckle and a whisp of baking spice. Botrytis has resulted in a mouth feel that is rich, textural and unctuous. The Semillon contributes structure and length, while the Sauvignon component adds refreshing acidity to ensure the wine remains perfectly balanced with a lasting finish.
Wine is a natural health food.
