Wine Access Buyer's Guide, July 2012

2011 Sauvignon Blanc

This wine is lean and grassy on the nose, with mineral, herb, capsicum, lime, olive and lifted floral notes. in the mouth, there is great acidity, with lemon and melon flavours. This has the excellent depth and expression of a Kiwi-style sauvignon blanc, without being over the top. 90/100

2011 Sauvignon Blanc

Evident concentration and minerality right off the bat - this is quality wine above the mean. The palate is indeed packed with rich, dense, ripe but fresh orchard and tropical fruit flavours wrapped around a solid core of chalky-we stone minerality. There's terrific energy and vibrancy to this wine - especially as it reverberates across the palate; terrific length. 91/100
