Wine tasting notes

Pale straw with slight green tinge. The vibrant bouquet exhibits delicate citrus and passionfruit characters, with dried herbs and thyme in the background. Medium bodied, the lively palate offers zesty lemon sorbet flavours combined with passionfruit, green mango and a touch of spice. An easy drinking ‘classic’ Margaret River wine style with a wonderful purity – fruit driven and refreshing, with a lip-smacking acidity and a crisp, dry finish

Expert reviews

JancisRobinson.com (2014) - 16 pts

Tasted Mar 2015 - Neat, quite subtle nose. Green and grassy but with some bright fruit in the middle. Tastes pretty dry.


James Halliday (2016) - 94 pts

This is radically different to its DJL sibling, the fermentation straightforward, power, drive and complexity deriving from the fruit composition (63% sauvignon blanc, 35% semillon, 2% muscadelle), and its pronounced minerally acidity. For those who dislike Marlborough sauvignon blanc and US derivatives.


Wine Front (2014) - 89 pts

So gravelly, so thistle-like, so much grass and passionfruit-like flavour. Smoky. Minerally, almost. This has a tutti-fruit note to help ramp up the appeal. It’s a good rendition of the style.
