95 points Anne Krebiehl, MW (Falstaff): "Slightly smoky notes surround the cut grass and lime freshness on the nose but a creamier notion also suggest the emollience of aloe vera. The palate is a textural dream, concentrated, yeasty, with a hint of green hazelnut. Bright lemon freshness pervades everything and silhouettes every nuance of flavour. Beautiful. (7/27/22)"
92 points/'#82 Enthusiast 100 2022,' Wine Enthusiast: "[$31 list] Indigenous yeast and old oak barrels add a richness and complexity to this Sauvignon. It's pale straw in color, with a reductive notes of nuts, charred toast and lemon pith, the grass and herbal notes taking a back seat. The palate is ready in texture, buoyed by crystalline acidity. There's length, balance and a long lemony finish. A solid pairing with rich, herb-flecked dishes. Alcohol 13.5%. (Oct 2022)"
Producer notes: "Imagine a summer fruit salad of honeydew melon and ripe, golden quinces – drizzled with citrus flower water and a squeeze of orange skin oil. A delicious floral fragrance and juicy tropical fruit, infused with a fennel-like herbal thread and a faint whiff of wood smoke. Fermented entirely with naturally occurring yeast, this is an alternative style of sauvignon blanc that is both intricate and textural, with a rich, succulent palate finishing crisp and long with a flinty dryness."
