Well, not surprising, the more we make it the better we get. The 2018 is the best example of Savagnin made to date. Aromatic and lively we have taken this old-world varietal and given it our new world twist.
Pale straw in colour and with a delightful nose of pot purri and toasted cashew nut this is fantastic to take in. The palate shows great length, tight acidity and with hints of sherbet and fresh cucumber, it is incredibly intriguing.
With these delightful characters and that mouth-watering acidity we recommend pairing this wine with a fresh and lively Salmon Gravlax. Serve with some thin slices of fresh, cold radish & white onion.
An icon of the Glandore stable and from a generous 2018 Vintage this will be a wine for now and tomorrow.
Showing a bright straw hue and a complex nose of fresh French oak, white peach, cinnamon, hints of delicate florals and tease of a bouquet garni. The palate now is compact and tight with fantastic length but as this wine ages you will see its generosity open up with richness and depth. A lemon butter zest and stone fruits drive the palate and linger on for a long time.
This complex wine needs maybe a complex food match. We suggest a Chicken Tagine with preserved lemon and olives
As the Summers get hotter and the winters drier, fruit yields are down. We were very fortunate to secure a small parcel of Semillon from the famed Maluna Vineyard to blend with the fruit off the Glandore Estate.
The blending of these two vineyards has created a very aromatic, fresh style of Semillon. Aromas of lemon pith and curd are highlighted by hints of tropical pineapple. The generous palate shows a sherberty texture with a long length of flavour and a grapefruit like finish.
Not one of our longest living Semillons but should comfortably cellar for 5-7 years and still show those lovely aged characters.
Semillon works so well with oysters but try with a lemon cured kingfish ceviche dressed with finely chopped spring onions and lemon zest.
