Elgin Vintners The Century
This white Bordeaux blend (65% Sauvignon Blanc / 35% Semillon) named the Century immediately draws the eye with its clear, brilliant light yellow colour still tinged with green. The wine leads with inviting aromas of
pear drops, mango, fennel and ripe figs with a subtle touch of waxy lanolin imparted by the inclusion of Semillon. “Wow factor” entry onto the palate where luxurious sun-ripened golden delicious apples and quince
inter-twine with an oyster shell mineral core, a generous creaminess and harmonious acidity. A satisfying wine, displaying textured layers of fruit which linger indulgently. Whilst this wine drinks extremely well now it is expected to develop even greater complexity with further maturation.
