DESCRIPTION

70% Sauvignon Blanc , 30% Semillon

This twelfth century Mission, which today houses a modern winery, is renowned throughout Bordeaux for its white wine. Sauvignon Blanc, picked at perfect ripeness and carefully selected for their flowery aroma, are blended with a 30% of later picked and heavier Semillon grapes to create this award winning wine. The result is a grapefruit, citrus-flower, and peach fragrance, round middle with great balance, and a crisp, clean finish.
