Elegant shades of pale yellow are displayed in this blend of Semillon and Sauvignon Blanc grapes. Aromas of lemon grass, lime and a hint of pear are framed by a fantastic French oak quality of toasted oak. Flavors of green lime, lemon grass and kiwi fruit are met with a creamy texture from the sur-lie maturation. The palate is complete with a subtle thread of toasted oak adding complexity to this bright and vibrant white wine.

This blends 59% barrel-fermented Sémillon with 41% stainless-steel-fermented Sauvignon Blanc, the result fresh, complex and viscous on the palate. Stone fruit, apple and fig are the stars of the show, with subtle oak influence imparting a touch of spice and length.

A 60/40 blend of semillon and sauvignon blanc, 70 percent of this lot ferments in French oak barrels, and all of it ages on the lees in those barrels for five months, lending the wine an oak character that initially dominates the fruit. With air, the clean passion fruit flavors gain precedence, layering over the savory, toasty lees. Decant it for roast veal. Best Buy
