Accolades

92 pts – “Perfumed and with a touch of spice, this rich wine brings out a tropical side of Sauvignon Blanc. Pepper and a textured edge add essential contrast. The wine is young, so a few more months would be good. Drink from 2022.” -RV, Wine Enthusiast, 11/1/2021 (2020)
92 pts, – VH, WineCurrent.com
90 pts – “Pale gold with silvery green tints. Notes of wild flowers, white-fleshed fruits and citrus on the nose. Mouth-watering acidity, indulgent juiciness and aromatic depth show the palate off at its best in this very freshly-styled Sauvignon,” International Challenge Gold Meda, Gilbert & Gaillard.
