In 1995, we launched this revolutionary Bordeaux white and immediately won a prestigious IWC Trophy. Winemaker Jean-Marc has been fine tuning it ever since. The 2019 offers all the classic grassy freshness and citrusy elegance we've know and love!
With the first release of this wine 24 years ago, we showed judges and consumers alike that Bordeaux whites could have the elegant restraint of France and also vibrant fruitiness – in those days that was a novelty. And so it won the International Wine Challenge ‘White Wine of the Year’. Over two decades later Haut-Brion trained winemaker Jean-Marc Sauboua gets no less excited about his pride and joy – personally earmarking the best grapes from Sauveterre in the Entre Deux Mers and supervising every step of production. The result is a deliciously appetising white, with a perfect balance of grassy freshness, lemon and light tropical fruit and terrific zip. Equally at home as a glass on its own as it is with fish, salads or spicy noodles.
"Consistently great Sauvignon. Like NZ Sauvignon in character but a bit less fruity with more edge"
