GOLD MEDAL | Melbourne International Wine Competition 2021
FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
93/100 | James Suckling
A fine interpretation of 'reserve' standard sauvignon with layers of tropical fruits that sit gracefully over a plush palate that brims with fresh acidity. Texture and rounded, fleshy mouthfeel are key drivers here and the interplay between the fruit and acid components has been deftly handled. A bargain at full price, so an absolute steal with the Advintage Advantage. Go long on this one.
Sam Kim, Wine Orbit writes "Beautifully lifted and instantly appealing, showing Granny Smith apple, kaffir lime, apricot and lemongrass characters on the nose. The palate is equally satisfying with excellent vibrancy and fruit intensity, offering terrific drinking. "
James Suckling writes "A pretty nose of dragon fruit, peaches and coloured flowers. Medium-bodied with brightness and a gentle approach. Subtle and nuanced but with a sneaky amount of concentration that keeps the rather pretty palate fresh and fruitful through a long finish. Refreshing tannins at the end."
