This wine has been made in a style that will change and develop over time in the bottle. The three varieties each lend their own character to the wine. The Semillon starts as a youthful, fresh green leafy flavours that will mature into honeyed, waxy flavours as the wine evolves. The Sauvignon Blanc adds a tropical fruit and green apple flavour with a zesty acidity. The Viognier supports the acid with richness and stonefruit flavours that will become more prominent as the wine ages in bottle.
