Big, rich wine, yet remaining fresh and vivid. Needs time to come together. A blend of 80% sauvignon blanc and 20% semillon. but the semillon really marks the wine. Searing acidity, too. Try after 2021. collapse

There's excellent shape and form through the palate, with a huge intensity of flavour. This has a slatey lick of minerality that almost knocks you off your feet but ends up just making you want more. Flavours of apricot, white pear, tight rosemary and grilled almonds are joined by a succulent structure, austere in all the right places. Good ageing potential. Harvested 5-22 September. 3.17pH. 6% new oak.

Medium-bodied and with a beautiful silky texture, the palate is packed with vibrant stone fruit and tropical fruit flavors, sporting a racy line of freshness, and it finishes long with an invigorating lift. collapse

Youthful and crisp with a spark of honeysuckle, orange, grapefruit, vanilla and lemon on the nose. On the palate this wine is drenched in brightness and very refreshing.

Distinctive and suave in feel. Sauvignon Blanc and Sémillon. Drink now through 2025. — JM collapse

This medium gold-hued effort offers bright lemon and white grapefruit notes as well as a kiss of minerality and honeysuckle. It's vibrant and racy, yet beautifully textured, balanced, and unquestionably high quality. collapse

(WE 90-92 points) This wine is soft and ripe. Tropical fruit flavors are balanced by zesty citrus, resulting in a crisp and perfumed character. Drink from 2019.

The palate is well balanced with a harmonious entry and fine acidity, plenty of lime and green apple notes mixed with caramelised pear. The palate perhaps does not quite match the attractiveness on the aromatics, but will still drink well for the next 10 years. -- Neal Martin collapse
