What the Critics say
A great vintage for Margaret River white wines. Barrel fermented in French puncheons (33% new), but that is not the only winemaking input, some enriching use of solids also in play. It’s complex, and in a lineage that will ensure the wine has a healthy life ahead. 13% alc, screwcap. 96 points, drink to 2030.
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.
