Bottled just three weeks before my visit, the 2018 Sauvignon Blanc seemed pretty recovered, offering up ripe nectarine and cut-grass notes on the nose. Medium to full-bodied, it’s plump and silky on the palate, showcasing round fig and melon notes before tailing off just a bit abruptly on the finish. Fifteen percent of the blend went into puncheons and 5% is Sémillon. 2019 – 2020
Organic and vegan. Lightly dusty/stony layer over the herbal and smoky aroma. Nicely dry, no lack of fruit, but with a light reductive character to take the edge off Sauvignon Blanc’s excesses. Long, stony finish. 13.5% 2019 – 2022
