Sauvignon Blanc 2017

Flinty nose exuding pristine passionfruit and lime aromas. Surprising depth on the palate, lemon and lime feature along with mineral and flinty characters typical of the granite soils at Cannibal creek.

Weather

Cool stable spring temperatures, followed by an unusually long warm summer, more than usual for most parts of Southern Victoria.

Vintage

Early budburst, good steady growing conditions followed by fast finishing and an early picking. Soil sustainability initiatives.  Fruit near perfect on flavour colour and structure. 8.5/10

Ned Goodwin - Published on 01 Aug 2017

“This is an intriguing expression of a grape variety too often overly exuberant. Calm and soothing, like a mineral spring flowing, this is an effortless drink. Notes of fennel, lemongrass, white flower and the faintest hint of vegetation shimmy along a tingly palate, edged by a flinty mineral cut and transparent, natural acidity. More Loire Valley than New World in its guise.” Rating 92/100
