95 Points - The Real Review by Bob Campbell, Master of Wine
"An impressive wine with power, purity and citrus, lime zest, oyster shell, mineral and a very subtle nutty lees character. The perfect wine with freshly shucked oysters seasoned with a squeeze of lime."
From one of the most ancient vines in the world, Sauvignon Blanc has a rich history in winemaking. The mother to Cabernet Sauvignon, the name Sauvignon comes from the French word, 'sauvage', meaning wild. Although the parentage is not totally known, Sauvignon Blanc's origins are in western France, both the Loire Valley (Sancerre) and in Bordeaux, (Bordeaux Blanc).
Here in New Zealand, Sauvignon Blanc has found it's home and expresses itself in a way that is not replicated in other parts of the world; making it truly unique and reflective of the climate and soil in which it grows.
