It's about 75% Sauv Blanc, 25% Sémillon. Lush with bright, fresh flavors of pineapple and grapefruit, it also has good acids with nuances of tangerine, orange and lemon peel. It's refreshing and textural, the sort of white wine that demands shellfish and seafood. Especially good on the finish, which adds a bit of cinnamon.
