LAST CALL, FULLY MATURE AND AT ITS PEAK!! CHILL AND SERVE!!

50% Sauvignon blanc and 50% Semillon

"Light and nervy, with good thyme, chamomile and lemon zest notes that stay lively through the finish. Drink now. 5,000 cases made.–JM "(WS)

"Pale straw. Vibrant fruity aromas of melon, green fig and sage on the sauvignon blanc-dominated nose. Richer and creamier on the palate, with more obvious semillon character showing; white peach, pear and beeswax flavors offer good depth and energy, picking up lingering fresh herb nuances with air. A trace of dilution in the mid-palate held my score down." (VM)

"Bright fruity nose with lime, ripe granny smith apples and tangerine. Lively and fresh on the palate with well dosed ripe acidity and focused texture. Well balanced. Very enjoyable to drink already now." (JS)

"Spicy, toasty fresh citrus wine. It's light, crisp, with bright final acidity." (WE)
