Tasting Note

Oops! We overlooked a few (forty, actually) dozens of the 2013 vintage in a dark corner of the warehouse, so it's reduced to around half price to clear. We tasted this very recently (on 4th May 2018), and can confirm that it still has good freshness and zest on the palate, with a richer, weightier mouthfeel than in its youth, balanced by bright acidity and with impressive length. The aromas have become more pronounced and you would almost certainly think that it is a Sauvignon Blanc, if the label didn't say otherwise.

Product Information

Press

  • The 2013 Single Vineyard Kadum Sauvignon Gris is produced from the pink/grey version of the Sauvignon family that was planted in 2004, given the success they had with their Sauvignon Blanc. The grapes ripen later than Sauvignon Blanc. The whole clusters were pressed and most of the must fermented in stainless steel vats, but a small percentage fermented in 400-liter oak barrels. The wine aged in contact with the lees for five months with some gentle battonage. It has an herbal aroma with spicy notes of white pepper as well as tropical aromas of mango that remind me of the wines of Didier Dagueneau. It has more body and volume than the Sauvignon Blanc, with slightly less acidity. Scored 89/100
