Made from 35% Semillon and 65% Sauvignon fermented in new oak and rested on their lees for several months adding texture and complexity.

Tasting Note:

Pleasantly fruity citrus aromas at first sniff, with more mineral, slightly oaky notes emerge on swirling, blending with the Sauvignonaromas. After a wonderfully fresh attack, the appealingly ample, rounded and silky extract unfolds on the palate, which ischaracterised by finesse and balance and offers fine aromatic length and complexity.

Press Reviews:

"Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon. From Maison Sichel, in the same stable as Châteaux Palmer and Angludet. Fresh lime leaf aromas reveal a good percentage of Semillon. Great acidity – tart and tight. The grassy style is very good."
90 points, Decanter.com

"Hilly, limestone soil vineyards - two thirds Sauvignon and one third Sémillon - account for Argadens' amazing, intense, mandarin, lime pickle and gooseberry hit."
