Details

Thousand Candles pick their Sauvignon Blanc grapes later so this is a big, riper style than our neighbours'. Fermented 'wild' in old oak barrel, this is a wine full of interest, texture and flavour.


"Aromas of stone fruit and melon with some spicy notes. Pink grapefruit shines through with the bright acid drive. A medium to full bodied palate with lovely texture.


Stuart Proud


"A dialed down, relatively restrained sauvignon blanc of tropical fruits, light grassiness, some good intensity to flavour but ostensibly a simple wine. Juiciness is a thing here, so is the squeaky, lightly puckering finish. Feels good. Easy drinking, nicely done, pretty four square kinda vibe but you’d tuck in with gusto."
