Tasting Notes

Only 3,000 bottles of the White Reserve are made per year. The Reserve is a blendy of 70% Sauvignon and 30% Semillon, with the Semillon having been fermented and then aged for 4 months in oak barrels. Lively aromas of lemon, lime, pinapple and almonds. The palate is broad with more tropical and passion fruit, zippy citrus notes and a core minerality underpinning the fruit. Crisp and refreshing acidity with a long finish with lingering notes of citrus. The White Reserve is a selection of only the best 13 barrels of the vintage.
