Our Sauvignon Blanc has lifted aromas of pink grapefruit and blackcurrant with an attractive herbal and floral influence. Citrus and stone fruit flavours combine with a refreshing acidity to make a zesty, delicious glass of wine.

93 Points & 5 Stars: Sam Kim Reviews Aug-17

This flavoursome sauvignon is filled with ripe stone fruit, rock-melon, lime zest and sweet basil characters. The palate delivers excellent fruit concentration and weight, wonderfully complemented by refreshing fruit flavours and bright acidity, finishing long and attractive.”

18/20 & 4 Stars: Raymond Chan Reviews Sept-17

The nose is softly full and harmonious in presentation, showing a fine, concentrated core of passionfruit and fresh herbs along with hints of tropical fruit and snow peas, unfolding nuances of cut grass and nettles. Dry to taste and medium-bodied, the fruit flavours are stylishly expressed with a softly concentrated core of passionfruit, herbs and snow peas with nettle and grass emerging. The mouthfeel is soft with subtly drying textures with integrated, but refreshing acidity. The wine carries with good depth and presence to a softly full, passionfruity and nettly finish. This is a very harmonious and gently concentrated Sauvignon Blanc with soft passionfruit, herb, cut grass and nettle flavours on a fresh, but smooth, dry-textured finish”
