Winery notes (2016 Vintage)
"Our 2016 Sauvignon has aromas of tropical fruit and citrus blossom which simply bloom from the glass! A suggestion of passionfruit on the nose is realised on the palate and punctuated by a juicy acidity. Scrumptiously fresh and textured the wine has an excellent long and persistent finish."
5 Stars & 93/100 Sam Kim, Wine Orbit (2016 Vintage)
"This gorgeous sauvignon is filled with tropical fruit, nectarine and mandarin characters with a subtle infusion of fresh herbs. It is succulent and intensely flavoured on the palate, and delivers lovely fruit purity, wonderfully framed by juicy acidity, finishing superbly long and delicious. At its best: now to 2019."
91/100 Cameron Douglas MS (2016 Vintage)
"Vibrant and expressive bouquet of ripe citrus and orchard fruits, some tropical fruit aromas and grassy layers. On the palate - equally vibrant, fruity, fresh and dry; flavours of tropical fruits and fresh herbs, plenty of crisp acidity and classic lengthy finish. Drink now and through 2018."
4 Stars & 18.0+/20 Raymond Chan, December 2016 (2016 Vintage)
"Bright, very pale straw-yellow colour with slight green hues, near colourless on the rim. The nose is initially soft and gently voluminous with ethereal and fragrant aromas of passionfruit, fresh herbs and lifted white florals, unfolding some chalky mineral notes, building in intensity and unfolding cool-spectrum cut grass and nettle elements. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the palate has tightly bound, but sweet-fruited core of passionfruit, fresh herbs, gooseberries and cut grass. The fruit is aromatic, unfolding white floral detail. This has a taut mouthfeel with fine, dry phenolic and chalky mineral notes, along with fine, lacy acidity providing soft tension. The wine carries to a well-concentrated, lingering finish. This is a tightly concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with aromatic passionfruit, herb and cut-grass flavours, and dry, chalky mineral notes. Serve as an aperitif and with Pacific Rim fare over the next 2+ years. Fruit from three estate vineyards cool-fermented in tank to 13.0% alc. and 4.3 g/L RS."
