Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"Focused aromas of guava, lime rind and papaya with light leesy nuances. Powerful and concentrated on the palate, with a tight mineral texture and flavours of melon, green peach and limoncello."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2020 Vintage)
"Flagship sauvignon fermented in old puncheons using endemic yeasts. The result is a serious sauvignon with impressive complexity and underlying power. Fruitiness takes a back seat to savoury, nutty yeast lees and subtle toasty nuances. Peppery phenolics give the wine a distinctive backbone."
5 Stars Michael Cooper (2020 Vintage)
"Grown and hand-harvested at Kekerengu, the 2020 vintage was fermented and matured in old French oak puncheons. Pale gold, it is a mouthfilling, complex wine with generous, ripely herbal flavours, tightly structured, dry and lingering. Full of personality, it’s still unfolding. Best drinking 2022+."
Rated Outstanding & 95/100 Cameron Douglas MS, December 2020 (2020 Vintage)
"Ripe, pure, complex and developing with a core of tropical and local orchard fruits, a fine toasty leesy layer and enticing minerality. Lovely on the palate with a mealy finely textured mouthfeel, flavours of peach, apple and tropical fruits then herbs and leesy autolysis. Well made with a very lengthy finish. Delicious! Drink now and through 2025+."
