Tasting Notes

Highly acclaimed and considered one of the “Super Sauvignons” (a term coined by wine writer Karen MacNeil to describe a rare class of wines considered to be among the world’s utmost expressions of this noble grape),

Crafted using grapes from the Spottswoode Estate, as well as those from other iconic family-owned vineyards. Fermented in a combination of French oak, small stainless steel barrels, a clay amphora, and one ceramic and two concrete cuves, the resulting wine is an eminently drinkable yet cellar-worthy Sauvignon

This Sauvignon Blanc jumps out of the glass with pink grapefruit, Asian pear, white peach, lemon oil, lime leaf, and lemongrass aromatics. The palate confirms the nose and is extremely bright and tense, showing great balance. Bright guava, juicy stone fruit, and hints of pineapple pair with a grapefruit acidity that lead to a long finish. Frequent lees bâtonnage adds a level of creaminess and more layers of complexity. Showing beautifully now, this wine also has the structure and sophistication to age gracefully.

Food Pairings

It is an excellent match with sweeter shellfish, such as scallops and lobster, and seafood in creamy sauces. It also holds its own with chicken, pork or cream-based soups.
