Hand harvested, whole bunch pressed to get relatively clean juice straight away, that has little time to oxodise as the skins have not been broken prior to crushing. Wild yeast ferment for ten months in oak (5% new).

The extended time on the natural lees gives an unexpected texture and deliciously nutty character. A full bodied  style of Sauvignon Blanc with a dried herbal edge, vibrant acidity and a long, persistent finish.

This wine shows dramatic funk and citrus notes with underlying exotic fruits and floral notes.

Marlborough, New Zealand

100% Sauvignon Blanc


'13.5% alcohol. Alice Mills vineyard. Single-vineyard hand-picked Sauvignon, wild ferment in old barrels. This is a truly beautiful expression of Marlborough Sauvignon, tensile and complex with a spicy frill to the powerful citrus, apricot, passionfruit and fennel notes. There’s a beautiful acid line here, with crystalline citrus fruits dominating, and a long spicy finish. High acidity, but it doesn’t jar, such is the richness of the fruit here. This should age really well. 94/100'
