2015 Lismore Barrel Fermented Sauvignon Blanc -17.5/20 PTS - JR

jancis robinson logo"Spontaneous ferment in 300- to 500-litre neutral oak. Smoky and lightly reductive.
Herbal, fumy and enticing. This is gorgeous, has all the complexity of barrel-fermented Sauvignon and the freshness of an unoaked wine. More herbal than citrus, more complex than most Sauvignons, even than most barrel-fermented versions. Wild, herbal and fresh length. Superb wine. Might well age longer than this. Drink 2017-2021"
- Jancis Robison, "New Wave South Africa tasting" (October 2017)
