Light and tangy, with pretty mint-accented green apple and passion fruit flavors, lingering gently on the fresh, harmonious finish. Drink now.

Classic Semillon aromas of hay and quince create an intriguing but subtle opening act while the simpler palate displays some attractive cut-grass notes from the Sauvignon Blanc. A good partner for flavorful shellfish preparations.
