|About the product|
|Product||Pegasus Bay Sauvignon Semillon|
|Grape variety||70% Sauvignon Blanc & 30% Semillon|
|Tasting notes||match complexity arising from skin contact during fermentation. The Semillon component helps fill out the palate,adding fruit weight, richness and age-ability, while also acting to restrain the exuberance of the sauvignon blanc. The lees contact adds further creaminess and body, however there is still a crisp refreshing minerality on the finish.|
