Gold - Global Sauvignon Blanc Masters 2017

90 Points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

18.5/20 - Raymond Chan

Bright, light straw-yellow colour with pale golden hues, lighter on the rim. This has a full and voluminous nose with softly packed aromas of ripe white and yellow stonefruits with suggestions of tropical fruit entwined with subtly complexing nuances of herbs, nuts and minerals. The aromatics show ripeness and refinement and unveil green stonefruit, nutty and toasty oak suggestions with aeration. Dry to taste and medium-full bodied, the palate is poised with fresh, crisp acidity enlivening the soft flavours of white and green stonefruits, herbs, nuts and minerals. The palate has a firm, concentrated core with the bright, zesty acidity lending a thirst-quenching mouthfeel. The wine follows a fine-textured line leading to a long, elegantly concentrated finisj of stonefruits and minerals. This is a bright, lively and refined, subtly rich and concentrated oak-influenced Sauvignon Blanc with white and green stonefruit flavours and nutty, minerally nuances. Serve with seafood and white meat dishes over the next 3+ years. Loire clones 376 and 530, indigenous yeast barrel-fermented with full solids to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 6 months on gross lees in seasoned oak with 10% malolactic fermentation.

5 Stars - Bob Campbell

Scented sauvignon blanc with currant bud, nectarine, lime and subtle nutty characters. Smooth-textured wine with character. Great food wine in a bone-dry style, with impressive weight and richness.
