EATON Thistle Hill Sauvignon Blanc 2021 750ml

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.   1110 bottles made. 

Cameron Douglas MS 93pts

Varietal, ripe and fruity with a bouquet of citrus and sweet hay, pink grapefruit, fresh and dried herb scents then a fine lees and gentle spice quality. Dry on the palate with layers of spice and citrus flavours, the barrel ferment or ageing flavours layer in soon after with a hay and exotic tea suggestions. Fine textures from tannins and acidity meld with fruit flavours and mineral stone qualities. A balanced and well made wine that will continue to develop over the next 2-3 years. best drinking from 2023 through 2027+.

Bob Campbell MW 93pts

Rich, textural, weighty wine with lemon, gooseberry and grapefruit flavours together with ginger and toasted nut characters plus spicy oak. Good food wine with a backbone of fruity acidity and drying tannins. From an excellent vintage.

 

Vinous – Rebecca Gibb 91pts

Thistle Hill Vineyard is a serious, boundary pushing Sauvignon Blanc, secure in being a serious intense style without the overt tropicals or sweetness that most Marlborough SB drinkers are accustomed to. It is an herbal expression that was handpicked and whole bunch pressed creating a fragrance full of green jalapeno and nettle flavours. Yet, it is not green in structure, it’s fully ripe with intense concentration and rich form. Firm but balanced acidity gives the wine a real purpose and seriousness.
