Sourced from a single 16-acre vineyard, this wine is closed, still firm and young. Grassy and herbal, this classic cool-climate Sauvignon Blanc is rich and needs to develop further. This wine with great potential will be ready to drink from 2019.

A real rapier, with flint, chive and thyme notes that ripple along, flecked with sel gris and chalk accents along the way. Long and very precise. Needs a little time to unwind. Best from 2019 through 2022.
