Muse Sauvignon 2015

Drinking Guide


Drink 2016-2024

Our Muse Sauvignon is single vineyard Sauvignon blanc made in the Bordeaux tradition. Cellaring provides further elegance and complexity. The bouquet offers intense and pure fruit: grapes, currents, blackberries and tropical fruit with wild herbs, aniseed and other oak derived spice. After maturation for the first time in 1500 litre foudres, the tannins are seamlessly integrated. Persistent flavours, its generous weight, body and acidity indicate it is a wine destined to cellar well.
