Lovely lemongrass and sunshine dappled limes waft up from the glass. There's also some fragrant melon. Mouth-watering juiciness from the Sauvignon Blanc is balanced by the richness from Semillon. Top me up!

Reviews and Ratings

Malcolm Lamont - WSET Adv, CSW rated this wine as 88/100 with the following review:

Crisp citrus and minerality from the sauvignon blanc, and white pepper and earthiness from the semillon come out on the nose. While on the palate the normally racy sauvignon blanc is tamed by the rounder semillon. I liked this wine for it's balance, but would stick to the more adventurous sauvignon blanc.
sit. sip. savour. rated this wine as 85/100 with the following review:

lemon green Sauvignon Blanc & Semillon blend with typical SB aromas of gooseberry, grass, citrus along with rich, ripe tropical elements. the flavours lean toward green apple, grassy freshness & peach.
