Made in a way ensuring the personality of site and soil is not over-ridden by the forceful character of the variety, this wine exhibits the typical Southern Right balance of "Old World" minerality and length with hints of "New World" palate coverage and body. The 2020 is a wine that favours origin expressive individuality, minerality and palate complexity ahead of pure, pungent varietal aroma. A significant percentage of fruit from iron and clay-rich soil has added a mid-palate structural component and additional overall complexity to this wine. The Sandstone soils have contributed their typical bright, tensile character and a marked minerality.
90 Neal Martin, Vinous, April 2021 - "The 2020 Sauvignon Blanc has a refined bouquet of lime and orange pith, Granny Smith apples and crushed stone. The well-balanced palate is fresh and saline on the entry, with delicate touches of lemon and lime toward the finish. Lovely."
