For decades has been the benchmark in Australian SB. The style has remained fresh, aromatic, and pure. 2018 was a fantastic vintage for this wine. It is bright and aromatic with notes of grapefruit, nashi pear and nettles. On the palate there is intense flavour with fresh, limey fruit, mouthwatering acidity and remarkable purity. Australia's leading example of Sauvignon Blanc, of a consistent high standard every year. As James Halliday said when awarding this 94 points: "If it's not broken, don't fix it."

If it's not broken, don't fix it. The innumerable buyers (or restaurant customers) know what they are getting with this consistently excellent example of sauvignon blanc. It's pitched between green pea/grass on the one hand, tropical on the other. It scores for its overall balance and juicy length.
