Details

"This FUMÉ BLANC style is a beguiling wine that brings a new dimension to Sauvignon in our wine line up. Essentially it seeks to capture a smoky minerality with both texture and length, and in our view succeeds. Due to the use of only 10% new oak barrels the wood component is so subdued that it simply provides a background note to a very complex wine."


- Crittenden


"You get the full box and dice but is it delicious? Honeysuckle, lactose, nougat and tropical fruit; it sways, it swings, it slides. Lime flavours drill through the palate, keeping it all moving speedily along. As jolly as it is powerful."
