Winemaker Clive Dougall wanted to turn the volume down on the classic fruit driven style of Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc and he’s done that using organically certified grapes as his starting point, which he fermented with wild yeasts with 35% of the fermentation in old puncheons. Malolactic fermentation followed in barrel with lees stirring and the result is a fresh, soft, floral scented Sauvignon with the  floral, elderflower and citrus flavours supported by a backbone of fresh acidity.

93 pts - Bob Campbell (The Real Review)

Unusual and distinctive sauvignon blanc, with a partial malolactic fermentation and one-third fermented in 10-year-old puncheons. Lime zest, oyster-shell, green capsicum, gooseberry and some struck-flint character. A punchy, high-energy wine.

92 pts - Angus Hughson (Wine Pilot)

Want to know what Marlborough Sauvignon Blanc tastes like in its natural state? Then look no further than this example with its natural ferment, partially in oak, which has made it so elegant and understated in comparison to most Marlborough Savvy. It still has the pale colour and tropical fruits of guava and passionfruit but in a gently aromatic rather than pungent style. But there is also a delicious nettley edge with an almost stony minerality. It is dry and crisp with good palate energy and a slightly rounded and nutty palate thanks to that ferment in oak which adds a nice touch of complexity to the fruit before finishing long, again with that stony edge making an appearance. It comes to life with food and is best enjoyed with simple grilled King George Whiting.
