"Complex, ripe and pure fruit scented bouquet. Aromas of fresh white peach and preserved lemon, fresh tropical fruits of pineapple and green mango then apple and fresh herbs. On the palate - textured, fruity, varietal and spicy. Flavours reflect the nose with a spicy acid tang, wet stone mineralogy and lengthy salivating and lightly salty finish. Well made and ready to drink upon purchase and through to 2023." 94 points.

"A gorgeous alternative-style; the complex bouquet shows baked apple, gun smoke, grapefruit
and lime peel aromas with a hint of oatmeal. It's concentrated and weighty on the palate, delivering lovely roundness backed by firm acidity, finishing impressively long and expansive. At its best now to 2023. 93 pts. 5 stars.

BBQ crayfish or any fresh seafood meal.
The growing season was a test to put it lightly. The weather in lead up to harvest was near perfect, vines were healthy, drought hadn't dried things up too severely. Sauvignon had vigilant vineyard checks and very close monitoring to ensure the fruit was harvested on flavour. Despite the stress of it all, the finished ferment pre barrel looked amazing. So no complaints. Luckily.
