85% sauvignon blanc 15% semillon. 50% new oak and 50% one wine-old barrels. Seven hectare estate planted to gravel with clay shell limestone subsoil. Average age of the vines is 25 years. 14% alcohol. Both the nose and palate are loaded with great weight checked by brilliant acids to carry the citrus and leesy nutty character through to a long brilliant focus. Under all of the weight and depth this shows great minerality and wet stone and somehow long citrusy and bright while fat and rich at the same time. It is vibrant juicy and balanced. Beautiful stuff one of the top whites of the vintage! Enjoy over the next 15 -20 years. Michel Rolland and white wine specialist Athanase Fakorellis collaborate as consultants on this wine.

A spectacular blend of 85% Sauvignon Blanc and 15% Semillon offers lots of honeyed melons tropical fruit and subtle oak. Brilliant!

What a wine with wonderful intensity of lemon limes dried papaya. Full and layered for a white. It goes on for minutes. This estate is rocking now. Tasted twice.

A fruity, ripe wine with lemon and pineapple flavors alongside a fine tang of citrus. Itâ€™s beautifully marked with wood aging to give a rounded, rich mouthfeel. It also has the texture to mellow into a more nuanced wine in 4â€“5 years.

Ripe with nicely rounded edges to the grapefruit zest verbena and lemon curd notes. There's a dash of straw on the finish where the cut and delineation show nicely. -J.M.

Pale gold. Very fresh Sauvignon nose. Then sweetly rich palate. Quite a powerful cocktail! Lots of alcohol. Very rich. 17/20
