  • Foxes Island Lapine (Sauvignon Blanc) 2012

Out of Stock!

97 points by Sam Kim Wine Orbit! The wine has a silky texture and incredible length that draws out concentrated flavours of white peach, lime blossom and orange peel with hints of river stone. Made in a similar style to the Chardonnay, the Lapine is a selection of the finest Sauvignon Blanc vines within the estate, hand picked and carefully transported in small bins to the winery. Fermented with indigenous yeasts in large neutral French oak barrels, a process that takes 10 months to complete. The wine is then bottled and allowed to age in the cellar prior to release.


Winemaking

It has taken a team of great minds, a special vineyard and a natural approach to produce a wine that transcends the conventional and yields something truly special.

In The Spotlight

Sam Kim - Wine Orbit: 97 pts

"There are many excellent alternative-style sauvignon blancs. This is the best of them all. Powerful and astonishingly complex, notes of white nectarine, ripe citrus, lime zest and nuances of dried herb and flint lead to a richly flavoured palate that offers outstanding weight and concentration, brilliantly supported by silky texture and firm acidity. A compelling wine of exceptional line and length. At its best:  now to 2028."  - March 2015
