Sauvignon Gris 55%, Semillon 39%, Sauvignon Blanc 6%. The grapes were picked at full maturity and carefully sorted. A maceration took place for eight hours with a cold stabilisation and yeast inoculation being carried out in tank. The fermentation took place in new oak and the wine was then aged on its fine lees with frequent bâtonnage, imparting texture and complexity to the resulting wine. The wine was bottled after 10 months.
Beautiful rich and creamy wine showing green apple and spice flavours through to a lovely, long finish. Classy, elegant and full of flavour. A smooth, ripe wine bursting with white peach flavours and suberb lemon freshness. Concentrated apricot flavours on the palate are generously kissed by spicy wood and the palate finishes with a long rich, toasty note. A classy and elegant white Bordeaux.

A refreshing white Bordeaux showing crystalline lemon fruit and a clean, zesty flavour. A fantastic blend bringing intense aromas of citrus, lime and pear on the nose. Unveiling an expressive mineral character on the palate, this wine is lively with good length and shows remarkable balance.
Beautiful aroma of passion fruit, grapefruit and a little oak. Same exotic fruit character in mouth with zingy acidity and just a touch of creaminess. Pure finish with some complexity. Delicious!
Dry, mid-weight, unoaked, with a complex palate showing oil, peach and lime juice.
The nose offers fresh citrus and floral notes. On the palate it is well-rounded, with grapefruit and pineapple flavours. The oak is subtle and well-integrated, giving the wine body and balance.
