We are seeing some fantastic wines coming out of this relatively new, up and coming wine company led by Matt Thomson and his wife Sophie. This is the fifth vintage of their Sauvignon we have stocked and every one has been an absolute stunner.
Winery notes (2020 Vintage)
"This single vineyard rendition of Sauvignon Blanc is sourced from the Holdaway Family vineyard at Dillons Point – our favourite sub region for the variety. It is a classic expression of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, being 100% tank fermented, but it offers complexity of texture and a mineral drive that summons river stones and sea spray. Blackcurrant, guava and passionfruit are captured alongside the subtlest hint of oyster-shell. This wine is focused and explosive on both nose and palate yet remains elegantly balanced and distinctly salty."
95/100 & #1 New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc, Rebecca Gibb MW, Vinous (2020 Vintage)
"A full-bodied Sauvignon that fills the mouth with an array of fresh fruit flavours, from Braeburn apples and lemon to pineapple and green capsicum. There's good substance here, giving you something to get your teeth into while the acidity creates an energy almost like a headlight's full beam turned on in your mouth. Bloody good."
5 Stars & 95/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2020 Vintage)
"From the well-drained fertile soils of Dillons Point. Rich, concentrated sauvignon blanc with green capsicum, passionfruit, subtle box hedge flavours and a pleasing saline-mineral character. Good purity and mouth-watering, fruity acidity."
