Wine Entry : Saints Vineyard Selection 2003 Gisborne Noble Semillon (New Zealand)

Probably purchased this bottle of sweet white at New Zealand duty free shop for NZ17, or about S$19-20 dollars. It does not have the intensity of a thoroughbred Sauternes wine, but still very enjoyable to drink with seafood or chicken dishes.

Smell : Puncturing wafts of honey and citrus aromas

Taste : Smooth and delicate almost like a runny lemon-lime marmalade jam

After taste : Tangy with nice mellow finish with no bitterness at the end

Description at back of bottle : From the clay soils of the Patuthi vineyard comes a Sauternes style wine displaying intense semillon flavours of orange peel lemon blosson and drier fruit intertwined with a hint of smoky oak rich honeyed apricot and toasted hazel nuts
