Details

"67% Sauvignon Blanc, 23% Semillon, 10% Muscadelle. The 2016 Triolet is an extremely expressive example of this blend on release. The aromas show more stone fruit and a slightly riper flavour spectrum than perhaps other years, where citrus characters seem to dominate. There is pear, lychee, lime and a touch of apricot. The palate has generous flavour and richness with stone fruits again dominating ahead of citrus flavours. Matched to this fruit presence are characters of grilled nuts, toast and nougat, adding complexity. It’s the mouthfeel and length of flavour of this blend that sets it apart from many other examples. We continue to drink these wines dating back to ’87, such is the ageability of these varieties when blended together."

"Gleaming straw-green; the combination of finesse and intensity is of the highest scale, as is the purity of the fruit expression. This is the vineyard speaking, shaping a blend of sauvignon blanc and semillon (leaving the muscadelle to one side) into a wine like no other. This is all about doing less, the hardest task for a winemaker."

"This is very composed and compressed. The austerity is the hallmark of this style. It has mouthwatering acidity, which makes it very drinkable. It has texture, as well as apples, pears and a sweetly herbal edge such as basil. A chalky palate that is restrained, elegant and powerful"
