Wine Description

(2010 Vintage) Youthful purity and a fruity, floral, aromatic intensity. AS it matures, it develops notes of dried and preserved fruit, offering numerous opportunities for satisfying food matches. 70% sauv blanc, 30% semillion.

    Great wine. This didn't impress with the first glass but really filled out nicely by glass two. Tasting notes included black fruit, cedar, some charcoal and earth. The fruit was sweet but not overly so. The tannins were pretty drying at this stage but that didn't detract from my enjoyment of the wine. This wine was all about balance and complementing a meal. Reminds me how good Bordeaux can be without being ridiculously expensive. Highly recommended. (2950 views)
