Winery notes (2023 Vintage)
"A truly thoughtful and classy expression of Sauvignon Blanc. The nose exudes vibrancy, showing lifted notes of white passionfruit and lemon balm, supported by a savoury, leafy edge, contributed by the inclusion of Sémillon. The palate is layered a textural, balanced by a slate-like, mineral acidity. The exclusive use of native yeasts and a portion of the wine aging on lees in oak barrels has aided in creating this sophisticated Sauvignon Blanc.

Seven parcels of fruit were picked from our biodynamic vineyard, Raupo Creek. The grapes were pressed and the juice settled naturally before being racked, taking light lees to small stainless steel tanks or older French oak barriques and puncheons for natural fermentation. The parcels remained on lees for 5 months, then were blended, stabilised and filtered. A small portion of Sémillon (10%) is included in the blend. The portion of barrel fermentation is 10%. There is no new oak in this wine.

Our clay rich Raupo Creek vineyard, farmed following organic and biodynamic principles is located in the centre of the Omaka Valley. This vineyard has a gentle north-west facing aspect and enjoys high sunshine hours and minimal rain."

5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit, February 2024 (2023 Vintage)
"Restrained with poise and elegance, the wine shows white flesh nectarine, basil, green tea and lemon zest aromas, leading to a beautifully weighted palate that's finely flowing and lively. Delightfully textured and structured with a persistent elegant finish. Certified organic. At its best: now to 2030."

4 ½ Stars Michael Cooper, February 2024 (2023 Vintage)
"This is one of the region's most sophisticated, subtle and satisfying Sauvignons Blancs. It's also one of the most important, given its widespread international distribution and certified BioGro status. The wine (which includes Sémillon – 10 per cent in 2023) is estate-grown in the Raupo Creek Vineyard, and mostly fermented in tanks with use of indigenous yeasts, but part of the blend (10 per cent in 2023) is fermented and lees-aged in seasoned French oak casks. Bright, light lemon/green, the 2023 vintage is fresh and medium-bodied, with strong, ripe, tropical fruit flavours, showing considerable complexity, and a dry (0.8 grams/litre of residual sugar) finish. Crisp and savoury, it should be at its best mid-2024+."

93/100 Bob Campbell MW, The Real Review (2023 Vintage)
"Rich, weighty and tangy with a pleasing texture and flavours that suggest green capsicum, lime juice, cut grass and passionfruit supported by assertive acidity which helps drive a lengthy, drying finish."

Rated Excellent & 94/100 Cameron Douglas MS, November 2023 (2022 Vintage)
"A very enticing bouquet of citrus fruits and stony soils, some fruit spice and a core of stone fruits and lees complexities, fresh herbs with a sage scent, and a harmonious rounded attack. On the palate a silk texture touches briefly then acidity, youth and power take over. Flavours of citrus the lemon, herb then spice, lees and then flowers and mineral soils. A lengthy finish with an excellent texture and length. Best drinking from 2024 through 2029."
