I first came across this wine when the buyers had a tasting and a bottle was left for us to try in Member Services. I'm a huge fan of new world sauvignon blanc. To some its acidity can be a bit off putting, but this blend with semillon makes this element of the sauvignon blanc a little less exuberant.
I opened a bottle (or two) with some friends for a barbecue this summer and it was enjoyed by all. It's a perfect wine to be drunk on its own but can also go well with food.: nice pasta salad, cold new potatoes and light-flavoured meats spring to mind. Full of lovely tropical notes on the nose, it offers light, peachy, hints of stone fruit and gooseberry on the palate which results in a very refreshing white wine. A real winner in my eyes. Enjoy!
