The Press - Your Weekend - drinks. - Wine of the Week from Cuisine Magazine.
The top Sauvignon Blanc from the recent Cuisine tasting is a vibrant, punchy style where the generous, fleshy fruit core is framed and driven by a flinty layer and bright acidity. Saturday, December 9th 2017.

Weighty wine with greater concentration and complexity than the regular label. Passionfruit, struck match, mineral and green capsicum flavours, with a suggestion of cashew nut. An impressive wine with development potential.

Cuisine Magazine issue 180 - Five Stars and Top 10
Smokey intrigue greets the nostrils. Aline of flinty smokiness extends across the palate, providing focus and texture, harmonising with the white peach and greengage notes. This is a wine you would happily match with steamed Marlborough mussels.
