This 2016 Blanc is 65% Sauvignon Blanc and 35% Semillon. Each varietal was fermented separately in medium-toast new barrels, followed by aging on the lees for four months before the two wines were blended together in vat and then bottled a month later. It is the Semillon which leads on the nose with aromas of pineapple, under-ripe mango, roasted Meyer lemon, a touch of beeswax and a very faint hint of vanilla. Those tropical fruit flavors continue on the medium-bodied palate along with elements of yellow apple and Bartlett pear. The finish is dry and balanced with medium plus acidity and the wine ends with that distinctive white Bordeaux feeling of appealing texture, weight and citrus fruit without any grassy undertones.
