A fuller bodied, textural style of Sauvignon Blanc. This single vineyard parcel is situated within the Dog Point Vineyard, using the same low cropping level from vines planted in 1992. Fruit is hand-picked, whole bunch pressed and fermented and aged in older French oak barrels for 18 months. Bottled without fining.
There's much at play here, it has a hazelnutty edge on the nose with flinty, restrained and dialled back citrusy fruit presence, minerally and stony, dried flowers too, clever wine. The palate has a level of weight and texture more associated with Chablis, very long, piercing, focused and glossy tight-wrapped fruit here. Great.More Reviews
