“crisp, snappy, citrussy”- Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2018


Down to Earth Sauvignon Blanc 2018

“The only problem with Xavier Bizot & Lucy Croser’s Sauv Blanc wines is that they need more time. I feel like I’m wasting energy opening this now when experience tells me that they need at least 2 years in bottle. Anyway, this is handpicked Sauv from the Crayères Vineyard in Wrattonbully. Aged on lees in tank and barrel for 7 months. Despite the maturing, this is still crisp, snappy, citrussy Sauv. Some sweaty thiols on the nose, suggestions of grass despite the ripeness, the palate then drives on into something snappy. Fresh enough, but I was expecting something a little more complex than this crunchy, lightly grassy style. Patience, Andrew! Best drinking: Next year or the year after at least.”
