Citrus, melon, a bit creamy on second sip. Grassy on the finish.

The winemaker from Cape Mentelle was touring through TX and stopped by Classic Wine Storage for a quick tasting.

This was served too cold at first. It was like biting in to an underripe Granny Smith Apple. Lots of tartness with a touch of sweetness. Grapefruit and melon showed up after it warmed in the glass. Finish rounded out too.

More on the Sauvignon side than on the Semillon (a hint of honey)

SB isn't overpowering but noticeable. The semillion rounds it out nicely. Would love to revisit in 7 years
