96/100 – James Suckling
93/100 – Huon Hooke, The Real Review
“Light, bright yellow colour with a savoury and complex bouquet featuring smoky, nutty barrel-ferment and lees-contact aromas, with herbal notes beneath. No sign of greenness. Varietal fruit characters are subdued. Good intensity of flavour, balanced and supple on the tongue with a clean dry finish that doesn’t show prominent acidity, the texture soft and rich with lovely harmony, roundness and completeness. Lemon-citrus shows, but it’s more nuanced than that. A very fine wine in the Bordeaux blanc mould. (60% sauvignon blanc, 40% semillon. The sauvignon was matured in French oak barrels, 75% new). Drink 2021 to 2030.” – Huon Hooke, The Real Review
“A barrel-matured blend of sauvignon blanc and semillon, this is very elegant and piercingly fresh. The aromas of lemon curd, green mango, grasses and passion fruit lead to a gently creamy palate that carries seamless tropical and lemon flavors in a bright, vibrant mode. Drink now. Screw cap.” – James Suckling
