2020 Wallcliffe Sauvignon Blanc
Our Wallcliffe series of wines are consistently produced using our finest parcels of Estate fruit each year. A straight sauvignon blanc was created for the 2020 vintage and it shows focus, vibrancy and minerality. The winemaking approach relies on the selection of our most exceptional fruit and is handled minimally to showcase the terroir and the vintage expression, with a subtle framing by the best French oak.
James Halliday Wine Companion
This is typically heavy on oak on release, almost too much for immediate enjoyment, however, having had the pleasure of some older bottles, the oak is justified in time. The question is ... how long do we wait? Here: the harmony of a ripe, powerful vintage and the significant impact of oak means that the wine achieves a certain loud balance, even at this young, boisterous age. Buy it and save it for a couple of years at least, you'll be glad you did. Concentrated, intense and even pure. Very impressive.
