Conclusion and tasting assessment
Semillon loves sandy soils, but this also contributes to its more subtle nuances. It is a cultivar that rewards your patience, and the wine only comes into its own with a broader mid palate after a few years in bottle. As a young wine, it is governed by subtle aromatics of orange peel,tangerine, tart green pear, thyme and just ripe nectarines.Executed with care to harness its gentle nuances, the acidity is beautifully balanced, offering a crunchy mouth feel and a good length to compensate for the lower alcohol.
