Thistle Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2019 New Release
Thistle Hill – with its unique geological history this wine is made with one focus – reflect the special nature of the mineral-rich soils that were once ancient sea bed. My aim is to allow this site to express its origins. A distinctive reflection of a special vineyard site. Once seabed now lifted from the seafloor to be gentle North-facing hillside. Dried herbs and spices on the nose and fine, mineral and taut on the palate. 228 bottles made
Cameron Douglas MS 94/100
"captivating bouquet of ripe yellow and white fleshed stone fruit, ripe citrus and a distinctive core of minerality. On the palate - tense, youthful, crisp and dry. ...the drive of acidity, lees and minerality lengthening the palate as well as building complexity. A lovely wine, a real Sauvignon Blanc that speaks of place first, variety second and lastly - deliciousness. Drink now and through 2025+."
Yvonne Lorkin 5 stars
Creamy marzipan and spiced passionfruit notes heave out of the glass in this highly aromatic style. ....Edged with lime and lemongrass with a touch of crushed herbs, it’s a beautifully structured sauvignon with perfectly prickly acidity that’ll see it right for a strong life in the cellar.
