Wow! impressive nose, it sings of Sauvignon Blanc with cut grass, strong gooseberry and green herbs. This is surprising as the wine undergoes 100% barrel fermentation and lees stirring. I would never have guessed. The palate does give an indication of the winemaking with a touch of creamy yeasty lees but it is still light bodied with crisp acidity. A lovely wine.

Outstanding (Score range 95-100)
Often an internationally recognised, leading brand or winery – but not always! Produces a classic wine that is a faultless representation of the style/variety. Complexity on the nose and a seamless palate are an example of the hallmarks of an outstanding wine.
Highly Recommended (Score range 92-94)
A quality focused wine that has plenty of style. Length of palate and intensity are often key characteristics of highly recommended wines. These producers could be the ones to watch in the future.
Recommended (Score range 89-91)
An above average well-made, reflection of the style/variety, which often represents good value for money.
