90 Points  “The Mayfield Sauvignon Blanc vines benefit from an elevation of 780m and a vine age of 23 years. The cool 2022 vintage meant the grapes experienced a long hang time and lovely physiological ripeness. The wine displays green gooseberries, ripe mango skin and dried papaya with a hint of pepperoncini and wet stone. A charitable fruit weight and lemon citron palate dominates the more tropical fruit and the wine finishes with a genuine lick of natural acidity. No mistaking it’s Sauvignon Blanc character, served up with vibrancy and grace.”

90 Points  “Orange is so undervalued in the world of Sauvignon Blanc with the wines always displaying lovely, vibrant fruits and subtlety. This is a perfect example with generous lifted aromas – classic Sauvignon – of blackcurrant, crushed leaves and a touch of asparagus. An attractive blend of zesty acidity follows in a light weight package with a gentle creaminess to the texture and touch of sweetness on a citrus and herb scented palate. A fine, zesty finish provides the perfect conclusion.”
