(2023) A wine I've enjoyed in previous vintages, but arguably this is the best so far. I remember a fabulous dry white from ChÃ¢teau Doisy DaÃ«ne that I tasted many years ago that so fragrant with peach down elegance, hints of guava exoticism and a juicy, crisp but not aggresive pink grapefruit clarity and acidity. This reminds me of it so much, any barrel ageing adding a subtle sheen of almond, but almost disappearing into the shimmering elegance of the finish. 54% Semillon, 46% Sauvignon Blanc, 50% aged in barrel for six months.
(2010) Arresting nose, the deep, sweet peach fruit and peach down finesse is ethereal, melding with mellow oak and crushed oatmeal. On the palate, subtle but generous tropical fruit, a big core of tangy grapefruit and a long, fine finish.
