Platter * * * * ½ – 2016 has signature herb nuance to white Bordeaux blend of near-equal sauvignon & semillon. Broad & rich, with subtle oak platform (40% new) & lemon-lime vivacity; harmonious & long, like 2015 (93 pts).
A white blend celebrating a marriage of barrel fermented Semillon and fresh tank Sauvignon Blanc before evolving for a year in wood. The wine delights with a range of flavours that interact harmoniously on the palate: floral jasmine and honeysuckle, fruity green apple and juicy loquats and a finish of persistent green pepper.
