One of those wines that makes you say “huh, so that’s why they blend Sémillon with Sauvignon Blanc”. Although the Sémillon makes up slightly more of the blend the greenery of SB punches throughout not obnoxiously so. Like the Semi was holding out the plank of wood expressly for the purpose of SB breaking it in half with its bare hands. All the green things and citrus but there is depth and warmth and a bit of weight. And dang it’s a bargain.

Straw with hints of green. Vegetable, like asparagus, onion on the nose, lightly savoriness, lemon zest, grapefruit grind, gravel, white stone. Medium plus acidity. Easy and simple.

Very drinkable white Bordeaux blend with citrus nose and grapefruit on the palate. Crisp with a little zing that lingers. 2019 vintage drank in December 2020

Immediate Sweet floral nose quickly turns briny, tart and rocky (mineral).

Nose of green apple, honey, white florals and peach. Tastes of melon, lemon, honey, with bright acid, light warmth, slight sweetness on nice full body.
