Wine Advocate 89 points - The 2014 Single Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc has aromas of grapefruit, gooseberries and oregano with hints of pea pods and white blossoms. A relatively elegant style with plenty of herbal flavors and refreshing acid, it finishes with good persistence. (Dec 2014)
Brilliant pale green this wine is very bright and fresh on the nose with lifted aromas of passionfruit, citrus and a distinct currant leaf and lemongrass character typical of this single vineyard wine. The palate is very concentrated with great fruit weight and is full of nettles, guava, passionfruit and herbal notes with also a thread of wet stone minerality running through it. Fresh and vibrant with lots of natural, zesty acidity the finish is long and dry with good fruit sweetness balanced by crisp citrus freshness.
