91 Points - Ray Jordan, West Australian "A surprisingly good savvy — mind you, we should never be surprised at the quality of De Bortoli wines. Pungent gooseberry and citrus notes on the nose and a punchy palate of some intensity. Quite textural, with a lick of acid and citrus to finish. Nice stuff."
Campell Mattinson, Wine Front "Balanced wine, soft acid with a creamy mouthfeel."
From the Winery
Over half the fruit is from the De Bortoli cooler climate vineyard in the King Valley, ideal climate for growing premium Sauvignon Blanc. Remaining fruit is from select old vineyards in the Riverina which each year consistently produce aromatic & flavoursome Sauvignon Blanc. Wine making techniques included fermentation at elevated temperatures and fermentation with solids. These techniques improve texture and softness without sacrificing varietal expression. Wine was left on yeast lees ‘Sur lie’ for 4 months prior to blending. A portion of the blend was fermented in French oak Barriques handed down from our Noble One program.
