Not your average Sauvignon Blanc, this wine balances the intense fruits of many New Zealand wines with the restrained mineral acidity of the traditional French style. Sourced from the cool climate Aude Valley in the south of France, the wine retains its varietal character, acidity and freshness. Rich and lifted with intense scents of fruit mingled with varietal aromas of gooseberries and passionfruit. The limestone soil has imparted floral nuances and a flint like river stone scent. The palate is fresh and pure with rich flavours balanced by delicate mineral acidity.
This wine, a modern type of French sauvignon, has intense varietal personality, suggesting tropical fruits, blackcurrants, grass and minerals. It tastes forward and fruity, refreshing and clean. Ralph Kyte-Powell

It’s cracking value. You have to be in the mood for a pulpy, estery, grassy burst of aromatic white wine – but if you’re looking in the sauvignon blanc section then I guess you are. Tropical fruits and hay. Acidity gets a little stringy on the finish but it’s bright, flavoursome and different-enough to make you want to reach for more. Compelling in its category. 89 points Winefront.com.au
