(aged for 16 months in 20% new French oak): Pale, green-tinged yellow. Sexy aromas of lemon oil, tropical fruits and complementary oak, plus a brisk herbaceous quality. Round, concentrated and alluring on the palate, offering terrific lift to the flavors of ripe yellow peach, lime leaf, fig and truffle. A touch of vanillin oak on the finish contributes grip. Lovely long, layered Sauvignon Blanc.

A limited release wine made from the Noa Vineyard’s oldest vines, barrel fermented in French oak (20% new) barriques and matured in oak for a further 16 months, this is a very complex, smoothly textural style, all about texture in fact, it delivers a nose with spicy bread dough and nutty aromas, some hints of citrus and grassy elements, as well as a little honeysuckle and lime. The palate has creamy appeal, really layered, long and smooth, flavors run through lemon citrus to lime and grapefruit, acidity drives the richness along to great effect. Drink now to 2022.
