Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"This complex wine has influences of barrel fermentation and subtle creamy lees notes. The palate has a burst of rich, tropical fruit and gooseberry flavours leading to a crisp citrus finish. The great concentration and texture give this wine structure and the potential to age well."
Yvonne Lorkin, May 2018 (2016 Vintage)
"Here’s a sauvignon blanc for chardonnay fans. Roasty, toasty and tropically taut and crisp, it’s bursting with smoked passionfruit punchiness and a lick of lemongrass on the finish. A very drinkable, in fact dangerously drinkable example."
5 Stars & 18.5/20 Raymond Chan, November 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, lighter on edge. The nose is firm and concentrated with intense aromas of green stonefruits layered with fresh, complexing gunflinty lees and minerally reductive notes, revealing fresh herb and nutty nuances. Dry to taste and light-medium bodied, the palate features a finely packed heart with flavours of green stonefruits and fresh herbs melded with complexing notes of gunflint, nuts and minerals. The mouthfeel balances fruit sweetness and juiciness, enlivened by bright acidity, and a fine guiding, phenolic-textured line. This has excellent linearity, and the flavours carry to a long, concentrated stonefruit and flinty finish. This is a firm and finely concentrated, complex oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with rich stonefruit and flinty flavours on a fresh and refined palate. Serve with herb-marinated seafood, poultry and pork dishes over the next 3+ years. Fruit from selected rows in a block in the ‘Limeloader’ vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented in puncheon to 12.0% alc. and 4.5 g/L RS, the wine aged 6 months in oak, 3 months of the time in 50% new, the wine undergoing batonnage. 93 cases made."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, November 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"A lovely alternative-style sauvignon, the fragrant bouquet shows grapefruit, baked apple, beeswax and toasted almond characters with dried herb undertones. The palate is concentrated and powerful, and offers excellent mid palate weight and silky texture, wonderfully structured by bright acidity. At its best: now to 2020."
4 Stars Michael Cooper (2016 Vintage)
"The 2016 vintage is a pale lemon/green, medium-bodied wine, vibrantly fruity, with a distinct touch of complexity. Freshly aromatic, with gooseberry/lime flavours and gentle, biscuity, creamy notes adding complexity, it's a drink-now or cellaring proposition."
