The 2006 Sauvignon is a textbook wine. It captures the essence of the cool Capriva micro-climate, with deeply suggestive sage, wet stone, mint and tomato leaf notes that flow from the glass. Medium in body, it offers outstanding persistence and plenty of style. Anticipated maturity: 2007ndash;2009.

Cloaked by its own intensity, this needs time to reveal its aromas and flavors of lemon and lemongrass. That tension relaxes after a day of air, the flavors lengthening, held firm by a gripping structure. Grown in predominantly clay soils, this sauvignon possesses cool tannins that serve as the foil to the nervy acidity. The combined effect sends energy coursing through the wine, a motion that seems to define the expression of both fruit and minerality. Built to age five or six years, if not longer.

Shows aromas of apricot, lemon and apple. Full-bodied and long, offering a superlively palate of fresh acidity and gooseberry, with hints of lemon peel. A crisp, steely style. Drink now.
