Winery notes (2015 Vintage)
"A fairly pale, lucid yellow colour, the nose is packed with dried straw, lemon grass, baked yellow capsicum, and rich lemon curd notes. But there is another very complex, herbaceous dimension to the aromatics of this wine. A pithy minerality of crushed gravel underpins notes of dried herbs, tarragon, dried bay leaves and buttered white toast.

The palate shows a rich, full, bold, fleshy entry with mouth coating dry extract concentration of lemon verbena, white citrus, passion fruit souffle and peach stone fruit. This wine has gravitas and weight of fruit, classical styling but with immediate accessibility and allure. The finish is long and focused revealing the Savage white hallmarks of lemon and pineapple pastille fruits, textural richness, a vibrant acidity, seamless integration and above all, balance."


96/100 GregSherwoodmw.com (2015 Vintage)
"There is no doubt that Duncan Savage is one of the best white wine winemakers in South Africa. His track record speaks for itself. Taming Sauvignon Blanc and more so, Semillon, from cool climate sites on the peninsula, has revealed the real potential of these varietals in a blend to a whole new generation of winemakers and consumers. The 2015 however, was one of Duncan’s most anticipated releases with the vintage lauded as possibly the best ever in SA for red and white wines. This Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon based blend incorporates small amounts of Clairette Blanche and Chenin Blanc this vintage. This slightly bigger blend perhaps explains the wines broader aromatic profile. There is still the dusty lemon and herb spice, yellow grapefruit and lime peel freshness, but also extra notes of white pear, white pepper, white crunchy peaches and green apple zest. Once again, the pithy minerality of crushed gravel underpins both the nose and palate and there’s an almost German, Pfalz-like strawberries and vanilla ice cream exotism in play. The palate is bold, intense and concentrated with pithy gravelly notes balanced by massive fruit concentration and length. The vintage’s sublime quality is indeed standing up to be counted! Duncan has perfectly captured the essence of 2015’s greatness. But the wine remains classical, measured, restrained and fresh and finally unlocks its hallmark lemon and pineapple pastille fruit character on the long, intense finish. This is a truly grand expression, a wine that will demand its place in your cellar. Could this be Duncan’s greatest white expression to date? Drink now to 2028+ "


17/20 Julia Harding, JancisRobinson.com (2015 Vintage)
"Zesty, herbal and rocky. Dry but powerful with a cedar/sour freshness on the finish that seems more about origin than variety. Ripe pear and quince fruit but bone dry with a rich depth to the texture and terrific length."


90/100 Wine Enthusiast (2015 Vintage)
"A blend of 44% Sauvignon Blanc, 36% Sémillon, 11% Clairette Blanche and 8% Chenin Blanc, this wine is still drinking young, and would benefit from some more time in the cellar to flesh out. Aromas of white peach, melon rind, pressed buttercup, verbena and almond skin unfold on the nose and continue through to the slightly plush, smooth palate. Medium acidity lends good cut to the mouthfeel, while soft nuances of toast and baking spice grace the close."

    review rating 5  Excellent service. We wanted to bring wine from NZ homw to Europe, but shipping rates were so high and shipping times were so long that we decided to take it on the plane instead. The team here helped us package up 18 bottles of different wines we had tasted at wineries in Central Ontago and Malbourgh for a flight and everything arrived safely to Europe. Many, many thanks. We have some happy friends and family now!

    review rating 5  Absolutely fantastic experience with Vino Fino for our wedding. They do offer a free chiller trailer with large orders but unfortunately someone got in just before us to have that on our wedding weekend. The staff are lovely and helpful, we had wonderful interactions with Paul, Dean and James. We did not have any idea of what we wanted to supply to our guests but the recommendations made were top notch and the guests loved them. The amount recommended worked out well for us, they work with your budget and they have a buy back option if you do not use all the wine. Would recommend for events or if you do not know wines like us and you are looking for recommendations.

The order was delivered the same day and because it was a Christchurch address there was no charge for delivery. I will certainly be using Vino Fino again.
