Wine Companion 2016 Rating: 89 Recommended
Harvested at night; 20% fermented in used French barriques; 6 months maturation.
The oak has a surprising impact, adding complexity to a crisp, fresh base wine. Skilled winemaking provides obvious value for a wine with personality, ready to go.

Australian Small Winemakers Show 2013
Our Sauvignon blanc has been rated top five Sauvignon blanc at the 2013 Australian Small Winemakers Show.
This is the venture of Joe Costanzo and Cindy Heath, Joe having grapegrowing in his DNA. He was raised among his parent's 20ha vineyard in NSW on the Murray River, the family business selling grapes to Brown Brothers, Seppelt, Bullers and Miranda Wines. By the age of 17 he had decided to follow in their footsteps, working full-time in vineyards, and formally studied viticulture over a five-year period. For many years he and Cindy searched for the perfect vineyard, and in 2011 finally acquired one that had been planted between 1993 and 94 (planted to 7 ha of sauvignon blanc and chardonnay, and pinot noir). They decided to make Sauvignon Blanc in the mould of the late Didier Dagueneau's Loire Valley Silex and Domaine A's Lady A, both barrel-fermented sauvignon blancs. To say the 2012 realises that ambition is a masterly understatement. An excellent winery able to produce wines of very high quality. James Halliday AM Australian Wine Companion
