Pale straw in colour. Pure focused fruit aromas of ripe citrus, white peach, a pleasant fragrance of white blossom. An underlying yeast influence is attained from a naturally occurring fermentation in old oak barrels for a period of 18 months. A complex full bodied style of Sauvignon Blanc with a chalky minerality and fresh herbal influence, complimented by a slightly funky reductive edge.

Stunning intensity. Smoky, citrus-infused, spicy and compelling. It’s a full on oaked style but is also very harmonious and savoury. Tremendous stuff.More Reviews
