The Taste

This wine has an elegant and refined nose, with notes of citrus and minerals, which are signature characteristics of this grape variety. You will detect notes of thiols, such as grapefruit and lime. The mouth sensation is well rounded, persistent and balanced, with a rich natural acidity; its saline and somewhat mineral.

The Corky Verdict

Amy- Another show stopper from Vultur, this is really special!

Sam- Limited to only 1050 bottles, we are so excited to have finally gotten our hands on a small number of cases. Unfiltered, unfined, with 50% of the wine fermented in French Oak barrels and then aged in them for 6 months. A sensational Sauvignon Blanc.
