International Wine CellarBrilliant yellow. Wonderfully complex nose melds lime, stone fruits, mint, licorice, resin and saline oyster shell; still a touch of reduction. Sweet and ripe but with excellent energy and purity to its flavors of yellow fruits, minerals, flint and baked bread . Beautifully integrated acidity extends the finish of this very ripe and sexy wine. This is outstanding, and perhaps more classically semillon in character than the young 2007, but the newer wine offers even greater potential.
