(2010) >From specially selected vineyards in San Antonio, the coastal area next to Leyda that specialises in cooler-climate varieties. It's a surprise to find such a wine bottled under natural cork in many ways, but on opening it was brilliantly and clearly aromatic, with a really intense elderflower and nectarine fruit and background punch of pea-pod vibrancy. On the palate there is a lot of concentration in this wine, the palate grippy and powerful (it has 14% alcohol) and a big, slicing core of grapefruit and some minerality pushing through. A very interesting wine that marries lots of Sauvignon styles together - herbaceous and tropical, intense and mineral, crisp and tangy - quite successfully.
