The Wine Front – Has bare-bones DNA of herbal, grassy notes with mescal, pepper over stone fruits and passionfruit. There's a sniff of wild stuff in briar, warm cashews, honey-on-toast and something like pot pourri. Palate is trim and given good curves from chalky fringes and limey acidity. It's deeply flavoured yet courses with power. Tight, lean, needs a decant it feels, or at least, several years in cellar. Architectural sauvignon blanc, with pleasure. 94 points, 2016-2029
World Wine – Beautiful fruit perfume, clipped with cut grass and a touch of Thai spice, think lemongrass and ginger, and leads to a citrussy, tangy palate of coursing, tightly wound fruit. Refreshing, gently spicy, touch chalky in texture for interest, grassy but not green; it's a fantastic release that offers quintessence of Marlborough, with added pizzazz. Drink on.
Wine Enthusiast – This wine captures the passion fruit notes typical of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc, then underscores them with a silky textural element. Hints of white nectarine and celery stalk add nuance to the long, white-grapefruit-inflected finish.
About This Wine
A vibrant mix of nectarines, yellow peaches and cassis combines with the bright fragrance of lemon zest laced with musky, jasmine-like floral nuances. The palate is packed with ripe stone fruit, melons and mandarin creating a succulent tropical-fruited style with that classic Marlborough zing.
This is an alternative style that is both intricate and textural, a delicious concoction created by fermenting sauvignon blanc entirely with naturally occurring yeast.
