Class 5: 2013 and older, any single, white variety other than Chardonnay
Nose: This Semillon beams with bright and powerful kafir lime & hay aromas with exotic notes of tropical guava and green melon. Also exhibiting some nuttiness from fermentation and maturation in old oak barrels.
Palate: Powerhouse of a palate, the flavours are dominated by ripe juicy gooseberry and citrus blossom, with the subtle white peach texture from start to finish married together with a delicate lemon zest acid.
Assessment: This a bold Semillon with loads of character and a good representation of the 2013 vintage. Pure and radiant already it will develop into a plush complex wine with time.

Wine Guide 2016
This was still showing remarkably tightness at the time of tasting. The palate has a degree of controlled tension with a keen acidity working with the lemon and slightly grassy tones. It’s a clean and pure semillon style with a persistent appealing finish. CELLAR 5 years
