A field blend of semillon (both blanc and gris!) chenin blanc, palomino and muscat of Alexandria (i.e. whatever is old and happens to be around – and it works perfectly well as a varietal selection process); all are at least 80 years old – some nearly 120. This is proper old vine stuff. Beautiful lemon shading to gold. Quite intense aromas, fragrant and with a marzipan solids complexity. The palate is beautifully, beautifully textured; this is the thing you notice most about it – and maybe a key product older vines. Lovely spicy, marzipan and almond character with some oak that is very carefully integrated. Great length. A lovely, lovely wine.
