What the Critics say
The naked power of the sauvignon blanc that fuels this wine is exceptional. Its fiercely unsweetened lemon fruit and zest ensure it will outlive the patience of many who buy it expecting a developed wine. The fact it has swept past two vintages will only serve to increase their surprise.
The much loved Sauvage has shed its Semillon and is now a pure Sauvignon Blanc. Don't worry, that is all that is changed.
It's still fermented and maturated in 500L French oak puncheons to allow a gentle ingress of oak elements, while preserving freshness. And it still remains on its yeast sediment "sur lie" during maturation to add depth and richness to the palate.
