About

Jared Dixon is the Lone Ranger of New England wine. Out on the wild frontier of NSW wine, striving to make interesting, idiosyncratic wines that will tale the tale of his region.

His hands-off approach works wonders with this Sauvignon Blanc. It’s fermented naturally in barrel giving the fruit an extra gear to kick into when driving through the mouth.

As far as benchmark examples of naturally made Sauvignon Blanc goes, this is one of the classiest in the country. Complexity and power with freshness in toe.

As Mike Bennie said in his 93 point review in this wine, Jared’s name “should be in lights.”, if these releases are any indicator, it soon will be.

What It Tastes Like

“It’s a medium weight, textural, fiercely delicious sauvignon blanc, heady with its fennel and anise characters, suggestions of green herbs, punchy passionfruit and pineapple fruitiness. The waxy pear skin-textured palate offers more of that anise and fennel stuff, almost piquant in its juicy, sweet-savoury hit and finishes with a light rasp of broken chalk texture. I could bang on…” - Mike Bennie (The Wine Front)
