2008 Section 94

This is bright with pale straw colour; on the nose it has interesting and intense wild yeast and the palate has mineral citrus and yeasty oak flavours with some underlying ripe gooseberry.

2008 Section 94

The 2008 Section 94 is a finely crafted expression of single block Sauvignon blanc that is barrel fermented in seasoned oak. Profoundly scented of pink grapefruit, mandarin slices, kumquat and fresh herb aromas, it later releases further notes of ginger, grass, white flower and green mango plus some lees and sulphide characters. Very crisp and intensely citrus, this is a beautifully balanced wine of great texture. The finish is long with lingering chalk and crushed stone notes. It's delicious now, this is a style built to age and it should cellar to 2016+ 92+/100
