Winemaker's Notes

This Sauvignon Blanc displays passionfruit, and cut grass on the nose with a chalky mineral complexity. The mouth feel is textured with a slight creaminess and concentrated with greengage plum, ripe gooseberry and mineral flavors. A persistent acidity helps to draw out the palate.

Drinking well now but will develop well over the next five years showing great concentration with evolving truffle and caramel characters.

Critical Acclaim

"Pale, bright yellow. Grapefruit rind, white pepper, crushed herbs and minerals on the vibrant nose. Rich, spicy and chewy with extract. A rather large-scaled and impressive sauvignon blanc with noteworthy density lifted by mineral-driven high notes."
91 Points

"Taut, lively and full of personality, with gooseberry and passion fruit flavors announcing the source clearly, hovering enticingly on the finish. Drink now. 22,000 cases made. "
90 Points
