Sauvignon Blanc 2021

$28.04

"Pineapple, sage, blood orange, and grapefruit pith are primarily evident, along a seam of vanilla bean custard. The nose has savoury mineral elements adding to the complexity"

- Martin Bell, Winemaker

"Bright, even, pale straw-yellow. The nose is soft and coy, with enveloping aromas of orchard fruit, citrus intermixed wildflower, subtle flint and spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of yellow apple, lemon, grapefruit and peels unfolding mango and guava, wildflower, spice and a slight creaminess. Well-proportioned creaminess contributes to a smooth flow with delicate phenolics; lively acidity enlivens the palate and carries to linearity. This is a thoughtful Sauvignon Blanc with lush fruit, complexity and appealing texture" 

- 93 pts Candice Choow for Raymond Chan Wine Reviews - Oct 2022

" A barrel-fermented sauvignon blanc that delivers sliced mangos, ripe lemons and mineral undertones. Medium to full body. Fresh finish. Some oiliness."

- 92 pts James Suckling - Oct 2022

Colour: Bright light golden hue.

Aroma: Grapefruit pith, tropical fruit salad and freshly crushed sage and basil jump from the glass. An undertone of cracked vanilla bean adds a hint of oaky complexity.

Palate: 12 on Gross Lees has given an oiliness to the palate that is beautifully juxtaposed with the racy acid line from the ripe Sauvignon Blanc fruit. The wine exhibits that New World flavour grunt, with Old world styling and balance. Textural with fabulous length, this wine begs to be enjoyed amongst great company with divine seafood delights.
