About The Wine

This is one of those 'SBS' blends that just gets it right.

Great fruit, great oak, great acid - all in perfect balance. It comes from the busy Bruce Dukes and his Domaine Naturaliste label. This is a terrific way to get to try his wines.

'Sauvage' refers to the part wild ferment in this wine. It's complex and thought-provoking without ever losing its sheer drinkability and delicious fruit. Balance is at the heart of this outstanding blend.

This is a special white wine from an ultra-talented producer, drinking wonderfully with some time in the bottle. Highly recommend.

Halliday Wine Companion

"A 75/25% blend matured on lees for 10 months in French puncheons (33% new). A hauntingly complex bouquet has passionfruit, lemongrass and French oak aromas, the palate with unusual depth and classic length. Trophy Sydney International Wine Competition '16 and Margaret River Wine Show '16, both thoroughly deserved." - James Halliday (Halliday Wine Companion)

I am trying to add more of a wine to my cart but it won’t let me?

This means we are running low on stock of that wine. So for example, if the website will only allow you to add 3 bottles and no more, then that is all we have of that particular wine.
