All the inputs are there: excellent vintage, organic viticulture, single vineyard, hand harvested. Then the wine making style gives direction, with indigenous yeast and judicious use of oak in combo with stainless steel. A Fume style that is restrained on the oak with attention to texture. Sauv. Blanc typicity shows, but complexity from oak and a creamy rounder mouthfeel take centre stage. Yet balance and structure is achieved with supporting acidity and 13% abv. Very well done. Sept. 2018.

This barrel-aged Sauvignon Blanc has a reserved nose offering hints of grapefruit and herbs. The dry palate is medium-bodied and creamy with very nice aroma replays and impressive depth of fruit. Nicely balanced overall with very good acidity and subtle oak that is well-integrated. Excellent finish length. Should improve with time. Tasted Apr/2018.
