95 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
FIVE STARS 19/20 | Candice Chow for Raymond Chan Wine Reviews
Plush, textural sauvignon with the focus on balanced mouthfeel rather than the typically more vibrant and overtly acidic Marlborough model. Lots of tropical fruits still shine on the palate and the careful use of seasoned oak on a small percentage of the blend adds weight and complexity without denying those fresh Marlborough fruits. Excellent wine.
Cameron Douglas writes "Complex yet calm, fruity and precise, elegant and detailed. Aromas of flowers and fruit spice, apples and grapefruit, peach and a leesy autolysis with quietly spoken wood spices. On the palate – complex, dry, fruity, detailed, and delicious. The texture drives the palate feel with super fine fruit tannins and moments of wood tannin, plenty of acidity and fruit flavours that reflect the nose. Nicely concentrated, crisp, refreshing, and dry. A lovely wine to be enjoyed today and through 2024+."
The winery writes "This wine shows an array of fruit characters, ranging from citrus through to tropical notes. This is complemented by some secondary characters from the natural yeast ferments and also some barrel aging. The palate has an elegant structure with a creamy, textural mid-palate and a long finish."
