Hints of phenolic structure. This is a dead ringer for top white Bordeaux, such as Château Smith Haut Lafitte. Crunchy acidity. A blend of 90 per cent sauvignon blanc and 10 per cent semillon. Enjoyable now, but better in 2020. collapse

It’s also beautiful aromatically on the palate and will benefit from a short decant if drinking any time soon. I’d imagine it will benefit from a year or two in bottle and keep for over a decade. collapse

A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon (30% Musque clone) 100% barrel fermented with 10% new oak, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc l'Apres Midi gives wonderfully perfumed notes of honeyed apricots, guava and passion... expand A blend of 90% Sauvignon Blanc and 10% Sémillon (30% Musque clone) 100% barrel fermented with 10% new oak, the 2017 Sauvignon Blanc l'Apres Midi gives wonderfully perfumed notes of honeyed apricots, guava and passion fruit with touches of lime blossoms and lemongrass plus a waft of wild thyme. Medium-bodied, the palate delivers mouth-filling exotic fruit with seamless freshness and a good long finish. 2,160 cases produced. -LPB collapse
