Cape Landing Silver Eye Sauvignon Blanc 2021


Interesting name for a wine, given that most wineries are desperate to keep silver eyes well away from their grapes, knowing how those tiny birds can plunder a vineyard. From a single vineyard in the Margaret River region, this saw barrel fermentation and time on lees. The colour is a pleasing pale lemon hue. The nose gives up a mix with grapefruit, gooseberries, cut grass and a whiff of stonefruit. A seductive texture here, quite rich, with very good length. Nicely balanced with real persistence, it is certainly well crafted and will drink well over the next four years. One of the better Sauv Blancs to come my way for a while.
