92 Points - Wine Enthusiast - "This full-bodied blend of Sauvignon Gris and Sauvignon Blanc boasts a slightly tangy texture and mostly ripe and spicy flavors from lemons to white peaches to white pepper and toast. Good depth, concentration and a deft touch of oak add to its complexity and enjoyment. Rich enough for main courses and best–2027. —J.G."
91 Points - The Wine Independent - "The 2021 Sauvignon Blanc, composed of 60% Sauvignon Blanc and 40% Sauvignon Gris, jumps from the glass with vivacious notes of fresh yellow apples, juicy pears, and grapefruit, plus hints of white pepper, fresh hay, and lemongrass. The medium to full-bodied palate delivers a satiny texture and mouth-coating apple and pear flavors, with a racy backbone and a peppery lift on the finish.- Lisa Perrotti-Brown"
90 Points - Robert Parker Wine Advocate - "A blend of 60% Sauvignon Blanc (fermented and matured in stainless steel) and 40% Sauvignon Gris (fermented and matured in a wooden egg), the 2021 Estate White Wine offers up hints of crushed stone and dried sage, pear and melon. It's medium to full-bodied, with a rich, silky texture in the mouth and a lingering finish."
