2019 Sauvignon Blanc Semillon
A delicately oaked Sauvignon Semillon made in the Bordeaux blanc or Fumé blanc style. Displaying complex aromas of kaffir lime, gooseberry and lemon sorbet. A tightly structured palate of grapefruit, melon and lemon zest with an excellent natural acidity, minerality and length.
Subtle though complex, with nashi pear, green melon and quince fruit characters supported by nuances of almond and white pepper.
Delicate and restrained with fruit weight and a slightly chalky texture driven by a refreshing line of natural acidity.

The Lane Vineyard Estate Series
From the highest quality parcels of fruit grown in our home vineyard, the Lane Estate Range of wines are determined by their vine age, purity, depth and spectrum of flavours. Each variety is carefully grown and nurtured in the winery before ageing in the finest quality French Oak.
An unseasonably dry winter was balanced out with above average rainfall in June and August ensuring optimal soil moisture at budburst. Cool temperatures early in the season resulted in evening ripening and good flower development. A cold spell at fruit set resulted in very low yields across all varieties. A heat spike in January ensured optimal ripeness of fruit combining with low yields to produce fruit of far above average flavour intensity.
