28% Sauvignon Blanc, 25% Chardonnay, 23% Viognier, 18% Sémillon, 6% Muscat
A beautiful, almost emerald hue, introduces you to the intriguing nature of this wine. The aromatics explode out of the glass with passion fruit, white and yellow flowers, white peach and a subtle smokiness. The palate is at first bright and zesty with passion fruit and lime, but as the wine builds it shows fresh apricot and nectarine notes before finishing with lime freshness again.
