Here we have a rich, Loire Valley style Sauv Blanc, reflecting all the splendour of the historic 2020 Niagara vintage. Richness, power and concentration, with a wonderful minerality that I feel is the very best attribute of this wine. There is nothing shy on the nose, with guava, orange blossom, pink grapefruit, light gooseberry, plus the classic and expected grassiness of a Sauv Blanc. Six months of lees aging has provided depth and complexity to the palate, which showcases passionfruit, green apple, starfruit, nectarine, and wet stone, and a flinty and chalky minerality which brings a great sensation of dryness. The medium acidity keeps the whole experience fresh, lifted, mouth-watering…and juicy! (CWC, 09/11/22). 120 cases produced.
