The wine has a light gold straw hue. The aroma is full of fresh and vibrant citrus notes. Lemon and Grapefruit dominate.
Whilst the palate is full of fresh citrus notes, some of the aged Semillon characters come through in the mid palate and towards the end. As the mid palate fades some smooth oily/lanolin characters, come through. The overall impression is boosted by the yeast characters to give a bountiful mouthfeel. The finish has an acid zip and crunch of grapefruit and pears which cleanses the palate ready for another sip.
This is a dry aperitif style for canapés and pre dinner drinks. Would be equally suited to smoked salmon or a full flavoured grilled fish.
