92/100 – Bob Campbell MW
4.5 stars – Michael Cooper

“Mellow, textural sauvignon blanc with capsicum, grapefruit, guava, passionfruit and lemongrass flavours. A backbone of bright acidity and peppery phenolics adds structure and depth. Intense and moderately complex.” – Bob Campbell MW

“Certified organic, the 2020 vintage was hand-picked and matured in seasoned French oak puncheons. Bright, light yellow/green, it is weighty, with generous, ripe, tropical fruit flavours, a very subtle oak influence and finely balanced acidity. Worth cellaring.” – Michael Cooper

Tasting Note: The appearance is a bright straw-yellow colour with slight green hues. The nose has a complex bouquet of gooseberries, fresh herbs, snow peas and kaffir lime with subtle nutty nuances. This is a bright and vibrant, sweetly fruited oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with gooseberry, stonefruit and green bean flavours on a smooth, refreshing palate with crisp acidity and a long finish.

Winemaking Notes: Clone 316 and 317 Sauvignon Blanc was hand harvested form our Corners Vineyard. The fruit was hand sorted and whole bunch pressed with the free fun juice warm settled overnight. The cloudy juice was racked to a seasoned oak cuve for indigenous fermentation. The ferment was warm 24 degrees and lasted 12 days before the wine was dry . The wine was left on full ferment lees for 9 months prior to racking and preparing for bottling.
