The most interesting, “best” Sauvignon Blanc fruit we harvest every vintage comes from our Creekside Estate Vineyard. Why? Who knows for sure: maybe it’s the clay loam soil in our vineyard; maybe it’s the local cool-but not too cool climate due to our location between the escarpment and the Lake; or maybe it’s just that Sauvignon Blanc flavours are all about getting the harvest date exactly right, and we know our own Backyard better than anyone else’s. Maybe it’s all three. Doesn’t really matter though…feel free to contemplate the mystery while you enjoy a glass.

86/100

Intensely guava and passion fruit inflected in the ripe sauvignon style (a thiol-rich wine). The palate is light-mid-weight with high acids, a touch sour indeed, and more syrupy tropical fruit salad flavours. A distinctive style. Tasted October 2018.

Backyard block delivers the fruit once again as only it can and does. There’s no real sauvignon blanc comparison here, only to itself and it’s the sort of Creek Shores, Niagara white to fill up a 20L keg and pour with reckless and without a care to the world, feckless abandon. For you and all your friends. Drink 2018-2019.
