    June 29, 2019 - I had been wanting to try this for a while and my expectations were met.

    A new take on Semillon. perhaps even a new breed completely.

    Think of this as somewhere between a Sauvignon Blanc and an unwooded Chardonnay it is just delightful .

    Light Gold in colour

    Mineral/ aromatic /floral/flowery nose.

    Om the tongue soft fruit delightful sweetness but not over ruling very east drinking morish in fact , fine grained, very little tannin and acid.

    Light lemon/lime finish

    I could drink this without restraint and finish a bottle on my own .
    This is a beautifully balanced wine that required a lot of skill to make and I noticed that Gundog estate have taken this a step further with their Indomitus Albus which uses the Wild Semillon approach as it's base but projecting it to a new level.
    I think we have stumbled on something new and unique with this Semillon and I predict as it becomes more available that demand will exceed production..........it is that good .
