Wine Enthusiast

This blends wines fermented in a large acacia barrel and a concrete egg. It’s spicy and creamy at the same time, with rather unusual flavors of butter, egg and peavine, along with fresh cut apples. Somehow it all works in a seamless fashion, with good length and a lingering snap to the finish. —P.G. 

Vinous

Translucent yellow. Bright and focused on the nose, displaying incisive lemon zest, green apple, honeysuckle and dusty mineral scents, along with hints of succulent herbs and ginger. Dry, seamless and lively on the palate, offering intense citrus and orchard fruit flavors that show excellent concentration but carry no excess weight. Closes on a vaguely smoky note,displaying repeating spiciness and impressive, floral-driven persistence.

James Suckling Reviews

 93 points A complex Sauvignon Blanc that is partially fermented in acacia-wood barrel, this has a veryintense peach, lime and nectarine nose with flowers and a gentle, pastry-like edge. The palate isseamless, and acidity holds a fresh citrus-tinged palate with green mango to close. Bright, freshand gently complex. Drink or hold
