Winemaker Notes

Whole bunches were crushed, chilled and pressed before fermentation in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks. No malolactic fermentation as we look to protect fruit purity and natural acidity.

A benchmark for Australian Sauvignon Blanc. Unwooded to maximise varietal punch. Fresh and zippy with pronounced "pink grapefruit" characters. Ripe middle palate finishing with racy acidity.

Critical Acclaim

JH 95
Australian Wine Companion

Practice makes perfect, as does attention to the most minute detail. Pale straw-green, it has a complex bouquet with notes of herb and lychee followed by an intense, tightly focused palate with a touch of kiwifruit hiding behind the minerally acidity that binds the wine into a coherent whole.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

This white is bright and zingy, offering pretty apple, grapefruit and lime flavors that blossom on a supple frame and persist nicely. Drink now 250 cases imported.

The Wine Advocate

The 2010 Sauvignon Blanc gives intense grapefruit peel, lemon juice, orange blossom and lime leaf aromas. Bone dry (less than 2 g/l residual sugar), crisp and medium bodied, this wine lends a bit of viscous/creamy texture to generous flavor concentration, continuing through the long finish. Drink it now to 2013.
