Press ReviewPress

The 2016 Estate Single Block L5 Sauvignon Blanc offers pronounced lemon juice, grapefruit peel, green apple and wet pebble notes with faint suggestions of chopped herbs and grass. Crisp, refreshing and medium-bodied on the palate, it delivers great intensity with a long, minerally finish. 91/100

Lisa Perroti-BrownThe Wine Advocate, robertparker.com

Delicate nose of kiwi fruit and tomato stalk. Creamy, balanced palate with zesty citrus and a long finish,’ said an impressed Guillaume Mahaut of The Jugged Hare. ‘Fantastic, tight palate, bursting with flavour,’ agreed team leader Angela Reddin.

Winemaking

Extremely clean, ripe fruit picked from our L5 Bock was de-stemmed, chilled and gently pressed off to settle in small stainless steel tanks for three days. The clear juice was racked off and warmed before beig inoculated with selcted yeasts. A long, cool fermentation took place over 20 days. Once fermentation was complete, the wine stayed on lees for seven weeks, with weekly stirring. The wine was then stabilised and filtered before bottling.

Food recommendation

Great match with all seafood and fish.
