Winery notes (2013 Vintage)
"Fruit from two iconic Giesen vineyards make up the 2013 The August 1888. Matthews Lane grapes add rich ripe tropical notes, steely, wet pebble aromas and purity. Dillons Point fruit adds herbal notes, richness and structure. In totality this creates a Sauvignon Blanc with a tropical nose featuring passionfruit and lime leaves. Its multi-dimensional and layered with toasty almonds, fresh brioche and incredible flinty notes. Well-integrated oak provides complexity and elegance."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2013 Vintage)
"This distinctive wine is named after the Giesen brothers' grandfather, August (pronounced 'Ow-goost') Giesen. The 2013 vintage was hand-picked and barrel-fermented with indigenous yeasts. Light yellow/green, it is a commanding, weighty wine (14.5 per cent alcohol), complex and dry, with highly concentrated tropical-fruit flavours, slightly nutty, tight and long. Maturing gracefully, it's a very harmonious wine, likely to be at its best 2017+."
92/100 Wine Enthusiast (2013 Vintage)
"​Another high-end Sauvignon Blanc that sees some oak aging, this is a rich, ripe wine, loaded with nectarine and citrus fruit. The oak framing is barely noticeable, but serves to highlight the silky texture and adds a pleasant grilled note on the long finish."
Sue Courtney, wineoftheweek.com (2013 Vintage)
"​This is brightly aromatic with passionfruit honey, roasted citrus peel, wild yeast and oak barrel notes. It’s a full-bodied, mouthcoating wine and and while it initially tastes a little oily (think sewing machine oil) and ‘funky’ from the wild yeast fermentation, the sweetness of the tropical fruit melds into the savoury backbone with grapefruit zest zinging through the incredibly long and pungent finish."
