Tasting notes:

It has ripe aromas of grapefruit and lemons with overt white floral characters in the forefront. The hint of struck-match aromas characteristic of this wine reflects the use of solids during fermentation and ageing, adding a dimension of complexity and interest. The palate displays vibrant, varietal Sauvignon qualities, with citrus, racy fresh acidity and after 18 months of ageing on lees, creamy textures and a toasty, nutty finish.



95 points, James Suckling
Flinty, reductive notes open up to lime zest, white grapefruit, dried pineapple, hay, white pepper and hints of praline. Medium-bodied with sharp acidity and a phenolic, tight and taut palate. Focused and long. 

93 points,Wine Spectator
While fleshy and succulent, this leads with crisp acidity. Offers notes of lanolin, litsea oil, honeysuckle, lemon curd, lime sherbet and dried chamomile, which are put into focus with mouthwatering acidity. Reveals mineral accents, reminiscent of white pepper, that linger on the long finish.

92 points, Wine Enthusiast
Aged and fermented in old oak barrels, this Sauvignon is quite flinty and reductive at first. It benefits from a short time in decanter or vigorous swirling in glass. Once aerated, gentle notes of honeycomb and lime popsicle float to the fore. Primarily, though, this is about the toasty oak and struck match characters. Despite a few years of age, the acidity is still lively, crunching through the textural creaminess.
