Empire of Dirt Sauvignon Blanc 2019 75cl


"Six hogsheads made. This is so fresh, precise and full flavoured. Tight lemons, grapefruit and some fine spices. There’s an innate brightness to this wine, with lovely depth at the same time. This has a real crystalline quality to it. Long and mineral with a supple brightness. Serious, grown-up Sauvignon Blanc with some potential for development, but it’s delicious now. 93/100" Jamie Goode

Timo Mayer and his son Rivar make these brilliant wines in Yarra Valley, and to quote Rivar, "the Savvy comes from a vineyard next to us which the old man looks after" not filtered or fined, and just a soupçon of sulphur added.
