Wine tasting notes

The Sauvignon Blanc, Collio is straw yellow in color with green tints. The nose is an intriguing marriage of pink grapefruit, green peppers, and fresh sage. The wine has a well-structured, silky body and fills the mouth with crisp, fresh citrus—lemons and grapefruit—and lingers long on the palate.

Expert Reviews

Wine Spectator (2015)90 pts

A sleek white, with a vein of smoke-tinged minerality underscoring the ripe green melon, Meyer lemon zest, dried apricot and fresh tarragon flavors. Lightly juicy and lasting on the finish. Drink now through 2022.

James Suckling (2013)91 pts

An attractive white with sliced green mango, apple and pineapple. Medium body with bright acidity and a mineral, almond aftertaste. Drink now.

Wine Enthusiast (2014)90 pts

Enticing aromas of chamomile, hay, aromatic herb, tomato vine and stone fruit lead the way. The vibrant, elegant palate shows yellow peach, grapefruit, anise sage and a hint of mineral alongside vibrant acidity.

Vinification Notes

The grapes were destemmed and then given a brief period of skin contact at low temperatures before gentle pressing. 10% was fermented in 5-15 hectolitre barrels, 90% in stainless steel, with eight months’ ageing and batonnage, but no malolactic, before being blended and bottled unfined.
