The 2014 Meriggio is a pure expression of Sauvignon Blanc from the heart of the Chianti Classico wine appellation. This vintage shows higher freshness and acidity, and a bouquet that is beautifully redolent of white flower and passion fruit.

Fuder wines are a new and very welcome premium label from the well known Sauvignon Blanc producer, Giesen. Fermented in a 1000 litre German oak Fuder, the wine is given extended contact with the yeast lees to build texture and complexity. Deliciously creamy-textured wine with nutty yeast lees characters adding complexity to ripe nectarine, peach and other stone fruit flavours. A complex, satisfying Sauvignon Blanc in a very appealing style.

“Exquisitely fresh, spellbinding seams of tangy grapefruit twist and squeeze through pristine grassy tones. Herbaceous shades inspire and elevate, whilst a cool, flinty contour arcs through greener lilts. Compelling and luxuriant yet showing perfectly judged restraint and synthesis between vital fruit and arresting acidity. Sonorous.”
A significant step up in quality compared to the ‘Estate’ wine – The nose has an intense and irresistible aroma of passion fruit and a whole array of ripe tropical fruit. The palate is equally intense on the entry and immediately expresses those ripe tropical fruits found on the nose. This is a fantastic wine from Vidal that rivals many ‘top’ Kiwi Sauvignon Blancs. Just delicious – no more, no less...
Less intense than both the ’02 and ’07, however the palate is well-balanced on the entry with fine citrus lemon, grapefruit and just a hint of spice. Good weight and quite linear towards the finish but great persistency. Drinking now.

A 60/40% blend barrel-fermented and matured in French oak (50% new) for 3 months. At the top end of Margaret River white Bordeaux blends, it has a compelling palate of finesse and richness of flavour, all the components seamlessly fused, with grapefruit, peach and fig caressed by high quality oak.

Making aromatic varieties with the use of new oak well is a skill that seems to be spreading rapidly around Margaret River, and Suckfizzle have long been at the forefront; this rendition does show plenty of sleek vanillin oak, but there is a range of exotic fruits also on display; the palate is deeply textured, long and complex.
