    August 7, 2020 - Really beautiful wine, and it gives one pause, considering how many pretender N World wines are creeping up in price, this is the real deal for a fairly respectable price - medium to medium deep gold, beautiful creamy...complex, don't even know how to describe that, just pretty awesome, nose - creamy smooth yet with beautifully rounded acidity to support, certainly drinking quite youthfully at age 9. Long fresh finish that is complex, nuanced, really quite impressed by this

    May 22, 2019 - We enjoyed this very much with two courses: firstly a potage of asparagus with various herbs and croutons, and secondly some trout with almonds, garlic & parsley.

    Although it is apparently primarily sauvignon blanc, the semillon is very much to the fore here. I double decanted the bottle before setting out for the restaurant and then we started drinking around 2 hours after opening.

    The nose and the palate both show typical semillon characteristics; the palate is very smooth indeed, with quite complex fruit flavours, and just a touch of acidity to keep it all in balance.

    It's a very nice wine now, though I'm not sure how much more potential it has for development.

    August 30, 2014 - From a blend of 80% Sauvignon Blanc and 20% Semillon, the wine is fresh, lively and packed with lemon, lime, crisp grapefruit and vanilla notes. This proved to be a delicious, crisp, summer afternoon treat.
