Whole berry and destemmed, the fruit sees 27 days on skins, and 8 months on lees in neutral oak barrels. Where 2018 was a bit shy and subtle in its elegance, 2019 is confident and unlike any other sauvignon out there. This wine shows significant reduction, a decant feels necessary for the nose to come around. When it does, expect very confident and electric aromatics including, grapefruit pith, candied lemon peel, and fresh wasabi. Palate shows incredible balance. The tannins are very light here and acidity is very much in check. There is little in terms of VA but heaps of energy, texture and drinkability.
