About This Wine:

Color:  Bright, shiny yellow gold with touches of orange

On the nose:  Explosion of dried apricot, white peach, pineapple and mango balanced with roasted cashew, orange zest and marzipan with quince and rosemary

On the palate:  Sensual entrance evolving on a bright acidity lingering on a coated palate with touches of quinine, honey, grapefruit and strawberry reduction

Wine Profile:

Blend: 70% Sauvignon Blanc, 30% Semillon

Vintage Notes:

2006 was a fairly mild year with some heavy rain in late December. The temperatures were moderate through spring, which led to a 12 day heat spell in July with record temperatures. The vines shut down and it took the entire crop a little more time to ripen, especially after rain in October. Overall temperatures were mild and harvest was two weeks late.  The slow ripening gave wine with a lot of aromas and beautiful acidity (the malic acid was well preserved). We could extract quite a bit while keeping a very elegant wine.
