94 Points - Philip Rich - Halliday Wine Companion 2024
"From a 25-year-old sauvignon blanc vineyard in Gembrook. A natural-yeast ferment in both new (10%) and older barrels, then matured nine months. A bright straw green-gold. Bursting from the glass with its aromas of ripe tropical fruits, greengages and some attractive herbal notes. Dry, chalky and long, this really is a lovely example of the style."
