“Many layers of complexity” – Angus Hughson


Crayères Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc 2019

“A very interesting wine here that is strongly varietal but also has the benefits of complex winemaking which provide many layers of complexity. A little closed to begin it takes some time for the fruit to emerge – nettle, passionfruit and guava are then matched by almost Burgundian complexity of almond meal and praline from barrel ferment and lees ageing. The palate is equally subtle – creamy and textural with primary fruit in the background, and again that savoury, leesy complexity the most prominent aspect. But that character is also strong, robust and long with a distinct similarity to White Bordeaux. A very long aging style of sauvignon blanc that probably needs a decade to show its best.” 95 points
