Reviews and Ratings

Matt Steeves - Certified Sommelier rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Barrel sample - Tasted Lailey's small production oaked Sauvignon Blanc and instantly fell in love with it. Exotic fruit, everything you'd expect from a well executed Sauv Blanc, with loads of minerality, and a creamy yet very refreshing mouthfeel and finish. Limited production (91 cases) means this wine won't last long. It also happens to be a favourite wine style of winemaker Derek Barnett, so I'd recommend buying it before it disappears...
Tasted November 2013 - 92 points.
Neil Phillips rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

An intriguing and not often found "fume" style of Sauvignon Blanc.

Nose exhibits classic grasses, some tropical fruits (pineapple), as well as luscious apple, lemon zest and a hint of caramel and fresh herbs.

In style, it blends a Chardonnay creaminess mouthfeel, with the fruits and grassiness of SB. Minerality prevalent through the mid-palate, and the finish is medium-plus.

Tasted June 2014.

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
