Fermented wild in large format French oak foudres and puncheons with a portion of full skin contact.
Bright pale straw colour with greenish tinged edges and a watery hue. Aromas of pear and subtle dried honey mix with some herbaceous asparagus like notes and faint pencil shavings. Mouthfilling pear and lime flavours overlay tangy citrus, traces of herbaceous grassy characters and delicate pencil shavings. Dry, nicely balanced finish with crisp acidity and a savoury mid length aftertaste.
Drink over the next 2-3 years.

Other Reviews….
Serious sauv blanc that’s seriously good, but not as you know it. Wild fermentation in French oak foudres and puncheons with some skin contact. The result is a structured, savoury wine with an absence of overt tropical flavours – very pleasing as a result. Instead, phenolics add shape and mouthfeel while textural talc-like acidity ensures this remains refreshing. It is complex, flavoursome and moreish. Drink by 2028.
