For those of you how now think that I only go after first growths and Quita do Noval..... Smile

While I think that it is an interesting wine, nothing against it, I could not get past the burnt rubber nose of the wine. Good texture, well built and pleasingly soft for the masses, I did not want to smell it and when that happens, I don't want to drink it. Others will have other opinions I'm sure.

Believe it or not a good Semillon needs a lot of time in the rack. Don't know about this one, but those from Oz can always need six to eight.

Eitehr fortnuately or unfortunately, I don;t have any more of these to see if they need that time. i will agree that for white bordeaux, I generally leave them down for a while too. I'm just starting to dig into some of the 01's and they are drinking WELL!!!
