Spot on aromatics displaying pungent passion fruits, gooseberries and touches of green capsicums. Dry with softer acidity that what the nose indicated due to the fact the wine has been barrel fermented and undergone 50% MLF. This only makes the wine more serious and an enjoyable reserve style SB. Good stuff

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.
