Hand-picked from two vineyards, one valley floor, the other in Coldstream, whole bunch-pressed, wild-fermented with high solids in puncheons, matured for 14 months with occasional stirring before blending. Bright straw-green; Ben Haines at his best, the music sensitively played from start to finish. The most remarkable is his ability to conjure up so much varietal fruit with only 12.1% alcohol – normally the sauvignon blanc dragon would be threatening. So, forgetting numbers, the flavour set of white peach and grapefruit, intermixed with cashew, is totally commanding
