4.5 stars – Michael Cooper
93/100 – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
“Certified organic, the youthful 2019 vintage was partly (7 per cent) barrel-fermented. Bright, light lemon/green, it is medium-bodied, with concentrated, lively, tropical fruit and herbaceous flavours, a touch of complexity, and a dry (3 grams/litre residual sugar), crisp finish. Best drinking mid-2020+.” – Michael Cooper
“Fresh and exuberant, the wine shows grapefruit, Gala apple, nectarine and lime zest aromas on the nose, followed by a vibrant palate that’s filled with youthful fruit intensity. It’s texturally appealing with a persistent crisp finish. At its best: now to 2023. Certified organic.” – Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
Tasting Note: This is an elegant & summery Sauvignon Blanc with vibrant aromas of yellow loquats, stonefruits & freshly muddled lime. Delicate suggestions of citrus blossom, straw and wet river stones provide complexity to the bouquet. Strikingly juicy on the palate, the wine has medium weight, light creaminess & a crisp acidity, supported by lengthy flavours of nectarine, lime & chalk.
